Chicken Katsu Curry served over Steamed Rice

If you like Chicken Katsu Curry, you'll be surprised how easy it is to make using store bought Japanese Curry Sauce mix. I know, some say homemade sauce is always better but why go the extra length when you can make it the easier way and taste as good or better than take out. Japanese Curry Sauce mix comes in medium hot, mild and hot. You can purchase Japanese curry sauce mix from Amazon and in most grocery store at a reasonable price. A box of 8.4 ounce S&B Golden Curry Sauce Mix cost me less than $3.- and it can feed a family of 3-4 cooked with a pound of meat and vegetables. I simply add potatoes, carrots and a can of chicken gravy to the curry sauce and it turned out really good. I should know, my husband who is a picky eater loved it. This sauce is excellent when served over fried or grilled meat over rice.

Chicken Katsu is made by coating the seasoned boneless chicken thigh in flour, egg, 
Panko Breadcrumbs and deep fried till crisp. Serve it with steam rice or salad and top with curry sauce mix. You can also use the same coating ingredients not only with chicken but also with pork chops.
