We use Japanese panko breadcrumbs for these pan-fried chicken cutlets. Panko has a coarse, fluffy texture that cooks up remarkably light and crisp. We add flavor by mixing a spice blend into the panko before coating the chicken. Look for cutlets that are about ¼ inch thick so they cook through at the same speed the breading browns. Serve with lemon or lime wedges or with a simple sauce (see below). The cutlets also are terrific made into sandwiches, topped with a crisp cabbage slaw.


Tangy Soy-Sesame Sauce
In a small bowl, stir together ½ cup soy sauce, ¼ cup unseasoned rice vinegar and 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil. Makes ¾ cup.

Yogurt-Chutney Sauce
In a small bowl, stir together 1 cup whole-milk plain yogurt, 3 tablespoons mango chutney, ½ teaspoon kosher salt and ½ teaspoon ground black pepper. Makes 1¼ cups.

Sour Cream and Lime Sauce
In a small bowl, stir together 1 cup sour cream, the grated zest and juice of 1 lime, ½ teaspoon kosher salt and ½ teaspoon ground black pepper. Makes 1 cup.

Yogurt-Tahini Sauce
In a small bowl, stir together 1 cup whole-milk plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons tahini, ½ teaspoon kosher salt and ½ teaspoon ground black pepper. Makes about 1 cup.

Sriracha-Mayo Sauce
In a small bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons Sriracha and ⅓ cup each mayonnaise and ketchup. Makes ¾ cup.

The spice is a nice touch
This is Chicken Katsu with a nice bit of spice. Saw it and made it just now.

Could this be done in an air fryer with less oil?

Lynn C.

Hi Amy -

We don't work with them here at Milk Street so, unfortunately, we can't offer modifications to make this recipe in an air fryer.

Jane E.

Yes it can be done and mine are always delicious but every air fryer is a little different so you have to figure out what's the right temperature and time by checking on chicken for temperature and color.

Sean S.

What temperature setting do you use to get the oil shimmering, and how long should they cook?

Lynn C.

Hi Sean -

The oil will shimmer at any temperature on your stovetop it just varies on how long it will take. Medium-high will probably get you there fastest without over browning the cutlets. Assuming the cutlets are 1/4-inch thick as recommended in the recipe, they should only take a couple minutes per side. We recommend following the visual clues - browned and cooked through - rather than times since everyone's stovetop has a slightly different heat output.

Best,
