Chicken that’s crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, with a rich & delicious curry sauce- step-by-step instructions on how to make a killer chicken katsu curry

Syns: 4 per portion


  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 2 onions (diced)
  • 5 garlic cloves (chopped)
  • 2 medium carrots (peeled and sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon plain flour
  • 4 teaspoons curry powder
  • 600 ml hot chicken stock
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 4 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 2 chicken breast fillets (pounded down to 1cm thickness)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 25 g cornflakes (finely crushed)


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C
  2. For the curry sauce: Heat low calorie cooking spray in a medium, non-stick saucepan, add onion and garlic and cook until softened (about 5 minutes).
  3. Add flour and curry powder; cook for 1 minute, stirring through the onion and garlic. Add the stock, carrots, honey, soy sauce, garam masala and salt & pepper. Stir thoroughly and bring to the boil.
  4. Turn down heat to a gentle simmer and leave simmering gently while you cook the chicken.
  5. For the chicken: Place egg and crushed cornflakes in separate bowls and arrange in a row. Dip the chicken breasts in egg, then coat in cornflakes, making sure you cover both sides.
  6. Spray a baking tray with low calorie cooking spray, place the chicken on the tray, and spray all over with more low calorie cooking spray. Bake for 25 minutes, until crispy.
  7. Whizz up the sauce with a hand-blender until lovely and smooth.
  8. Pour curry sauce over basmati rice, place the chicken on the plate and serve with whatever you fancy. Sugar snap peas, edamame beans, ribboned carrot and cucumber and green beans all go well with this meal.
