If you’ve never tried to make chicken katsu, the Japanese, breaded chicken dish, maybe it’ll be a good idea to dive in with the Cap’n.
Perry Santanachote from Thrillist food thew down this Cap’n Crunch-coated Katsu recipe, and did so with a pretty easy preparation process.
There’s no heavy lifting involved and no crazy ingredients. It looks like a pretty standard breaded chicken recipe, except the panko flake coat is replaced with Cap’n Crunch cereal.
Santanachote recommends throwing the breaded chicken on a bed of white rice and although she doesn’t provide a Tonkatsu sauce recipe, some store-bought sauce will probably do the trick.
This cereal remix sounds like an absolute must if you’re in the mood to experiment.
