Chicken katsu is actually a chicken fillet that rubbed with egg, flour, and Japanese breadcrumbs that is called ‘Panko’. After that, it is deep-fried until it turns golden brown. Panko is an important detail to pay attention to. Simply put, panko refers to Japanese style breadcrumbs that are lighter and crispier.
