The global recipe: Chicken katsu

Chicken katsu was on TASTE food director Abigail Donnelly’s favourite meals in Tokyo. “Tender, deep-fried chicken covered in crispy golden crumbs can be found at the many izikayas in Tokyo. It was one of the first things I ate when I stepped off the plane. It’s delicious with this katsu dipping sauce.” Abigail Donnelly. The dipping sauce is worth memorising alone.
