This baked chicken katsu recipe is just as crispy as the deep fried version and stays crispy even longer!


Units Scale
  • 1/2 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Tonkatsu sauce (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. And move one of the oven racks to the upper-middle part.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. Prepare the ingredients for the breading. Place three shallow bowls one next to another and fill the first one with flour and the second with the egg. Leave the third one empty for now – this will be for the panko breadcrumbs.
  4. Fry the breadcrumbs. In a small pan over medium heat, add the breadcrumbs and olive oil and toss to coat evenly. Season with salt and pepper and cook until breadcrumbs are golden brown. Turn the heat off and add breadcrumbs to the last shallow bowl.
  5. Coat the chicken with breading. Pound the chicken to about 1/2-inch thickness and dip each piece in flour, egg and panko breadcrumbs. Press gently to coat the chicken evenly on each side.
  6. Bake the chicken. Place chicken pieces on parchment paper and bake in the oven for 12-13 minutes on each side, until the chicken’s internal temperature reaches 165° Fahrenheit (75° Celsius).
  7. Serve chicken katsu. Serve it with tonkatsu sauce or ketchup.


Keep the leftovers in a storage container and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
