Hello everyone, if you are missing eating out at your favourite Japanese restaurant then try out my recipe for Chicken Katsu Curry. This is a popular dish amongst my friends and family so thought I would have a go at making it at home. It was actually easier than I expected when I broke it down into what I needed for the crumbed chicken and then the curry sauce.
I also made this in a big batch and separately froze the cooked crumbed chicken and the curry sauce. It will make a perfect quick week night dinner in the next couple of weeks.
