Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Joe’s Cheeky Chicken Katsu

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Add the chicken breasts to a chopping board and cover with a sheet of cling film

Bash the chicken breasts with a rolling pin until evenly flattened and approx. 1cm thickness

2 Joe’s Cheeky Chicken Katsu

Add a handful of flour to a plate and season with salt and pepper

Crack the egg[s] into a shallow bowl and beat with a fork

Add the panko breadcrumbs and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil to another plate

Coat the chicken pieces in the flour, tap off the excess, then add them into the beaten egg and finally press them into the breadcrumbs firmly to evenly coat all over

3 Joe’s Cheeky Chicken Katsu

Add the breaded chicken to a lightly oiled oven tray and put the tray in the oven for 10-15 min or until cooked through (no pink meat!) and crisp

4 Joe’s Cheeky Chicken Katsu

While the chicken is in the oven, add the basmati rice and 250ml [500ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-15 min or until all the water has been absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered until serving

5 Joe’s Cheeky Chicken Katsu

While the rice is cooking, boil a kettle

Peel and grate the brown onions[s] and apple[s]

Peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate) the ginger

Top, tail, peel and grate the carrot[s]

Chop the coriander finely, including the stalks

Dissolve the Knorr chicken stock cube[s] in 300ml [600ml] boiled water

6 Joe’s Cheeky Chicken Katsu

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil over a medium heat

Add the grated onion, apple, ginger and carrot and cook for 3-4 min

Add the curry powder and chopped coriander and cook for a further 1 min, until fragrant

Add 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] flour and cook for 1 min, stirring to coat the vegetables evenly

7 Joe’s Cheeky Chicken Katsu

Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 5-7 min or until the sauce has thickened to a curry-like consistency – this is your katsu sauce

Meanwhile, cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely

Slice the cooked breaded chicken
