Author Notes: This is an old Traditional Hawaiian Chicken Katsu recipe and absolutely delicious! I haven't had any kind of katsu in years and I was craving it, so I thought why not try it myself? It came out great so I had to share. Enjoy! Xena

Sushi Rice

  • 1 cup Sushi Rice
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1.3 cups Water

  1. Start by putting the rice with the two cups of water in a bowl, rinsing the rice 2-3 times. Then drain the water.

Chicken Katsu

  • 2 Eggs
  • 3/4 cup Cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon White Pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 cup Water
  • 4 pounds Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs (I used chicken tenderloin)
  • 3+ cups Panko Crumbs
  1. Fill a pan 1/4 inch high with oil and heat it to medium high.
  2. Combine eggs, cornstarch, salt, white pepper, garlic powder, and water to make a batter.
  3. Coat the Chicken in the batter and roll into the Panko crumbs, be sure to cover it all with the crumbs. I did not have Panko crumbs with me so I used crackers and it came out just as great!
  4. Fry the chicken in the oil until it is brown and crispy on both sides, this will take about 8-10 minutes. Make sure you do not over fry the chicken as it can get too dry.
  5. Slice the chicken longways and serve on top of your rice. I added a fried egg for more flavor. Enjoy!!
