5. Fried chicken Breast with Cheese
I have tasted fried chicken many times and I had never thought of frying it with cheese in such a way. In season 5, episode 2 (Midnight Diner), the Master prepared Chicken Cheese Katsu. The Japanese seems to love fried chicken, much like us Trinis. There is even another type of fried chicken I wanted to try as well, but this one was my favourite. And I do not regret it at all. However, I will try that one some other day. Anyway, this chicken cheese Katsu is delicious. It is crunchy on the outside, and moist with the melted cheese on the inside. I love this combination. I believe I ate a few at once.
Fried Chicken Breast with Cheese Recipe
The ingredients are again few; you will need boneless chicken breast, cheese, Panko breadcrumbs, flour, egg, and oil for deep frying. First, thinly slice the chicken breast and evenly pound it a bit, until tender. Season with salt and pepper. However, being West Indian, I stubbornly season my meat with a little green seasoning.
Next, place a thin long stick of cheese as shown below on each slice and roll tightly. Note, use the cheese available in your area; you can use Cheddar, Mozzarella or Parmesan.
Then roll in the flour, and dip into the beaten egg, and coat with the Panko breadcrumbs. Try not to expose the cheese within. You don’t want it to leak into the oil when you are frying later.
Finally, deep fry the chicken in hot oil.
This dish took me about 45 minutes to prepare. The Japanese like to serve this with shredded cabbage, so I guess that means a cole slaw for us; and tomatoes.
