4 Chicken Fillets
1 Cup Panko
1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour
2tb Oyster Sauce
4tb Tomato Ketchup
1/2tb Light Soy Sauce
Season your Chicken fillets with a bit of salt and pepper on each side.
Lay out 1/2 a cup of flour on a plate, 1 cup of panko on another plate and beat up 1 egg in a bowl.
Prepare to bread your chicken fillets. Dip your chicken into the flour, coating evenly, then into the egg and finely into the panko. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
Heat up a pan with just enough oil to cover the pork on high heat.
Once the oil is hot, gently layer your chicken into the hot oil to fry for 8-10 minutes flipping half way till golden brown and cooked through. Set aside on a wired rack to drain off the excess oil.
While the chicken is cooling down you can whip up a very quick and easy tonkatsu sauce.
In a bowl combine 1tb of oyster sauce, 4tb of tomato ketchup, 1/2tb of light soy sauce and 1ts of sugar. Mix well till the sugar dissolves. You may want to microwave it for 10-15seconds to help the sugar dissolve.
Slice your tonkatsu how ever thick or thin you like and serve it up with your lovely sauce, a side of salad of your choice and a wedge of lemon.
Enjoy with anything you could ever imagine.
