Sorry been really busy lately. Just a quick one today. A couple months ago, I attempted to make my first chicken katsu. Let’s just say I have to work on it a bit. Luckily, we had some leftover from Sab-e-Lee that evening to make up the difference.
The chicken was tender, not oily, and the temp of the oil was good and the panko crisped up nicely. But the flavor overall was lacking. I seasoned the chicken breast with salt and pepper but there was just something missing. I’ve seen a few recipes where the chicken breast is brined or had some kind of marinade on it. Maybe I’ll try that next time, but definitely something different. Once I get a decent enough recipe, I’ll post on that. In the meantime…
Just want to give a big shoutout and mahalo to Pomai of Tasty Islands because he is totally awesome! I so totally wanted a Jack in the Box UH antenna ball when I saw his post (I collect these, doesn’t everyone?) and Pomai was so thoughtful to send a couple of them to me. Mahalo, Pomai!
No, this is not going on the car. Would break my heart if someone stole it or I lost it. So this baby will get to rest on top of my computer, keep watch over me!
Hope everyone is having a good week. One more day to Friday!!
