Air-fried chicken katsu that is crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. The sauce is a little bit sweet, a little bit tangy, and complements the chicken perfectly. Serve over rice if desired.

  • Preheat an air fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Meanwhile, lay chicken pieces on a clean work surface. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Place beaten eggs in a flat dish. Pour bread crumbs into a second flat dish. Dredge chicken pieces in egg and then in bread crumbs. Repeat by dredging chicken in egg and then bread crumbs again, pressing down so that the bread crumbs stick to the chicken.

  • Place chicken pieces in the basket of the pre-heated air fryer. Spray the tops with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Air fry for 10 minutes. Flip chicken pieces over using a spatula and spray the tops with nonstick cooking spray. Cook for 8 minutes more. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and slice. Serve with katsu sauce.

Super easy and delicious recipe! I ended up air frying at 400 for 20 minutes, flipping half way. I needed the extra time and temperature to get the browning. Read More

I liked this! A great sauce to go on top. I don't have an air fryer so I fried it in a skillet and I think it worked just fine. I bought the chicken thinly sliced horizontally already which was nice to start with. I didn't submerge in oil so thinly sliced was important so it didn't burn too much. Read More
