A note about serious food allergies

Ginger provides a unique pungent but sweet punch in the culinary world; there isn't anything like its unique flavor, floral and delightful. Here, it's mixed with crunchy panko and pan-seared to form a crust of flavor and texture. The sweet tonkatsu provides excellent contrast. Ginger's moment in the sun is your new favorite weeknight meal. Tip: To peel the carrot with less effort, lay it down on your cutting board and peel one half, rolling it as you peel. (Be sure to peel in a motion away from you!)

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using wild-caught salmon fillets, pat dry and season flesh side with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions for coating and cooking as chicken in Step 2, placing salmon in hot pan, ginger-panko side down, and cooking until salmon reaches minimum internal temperature, 3-5 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into 1/4" slices on an angle.

    Combine ginger and panko in a mixing bowl.

    Pat chicken breasts dry. Spread 1/3 the mayonnaise (reserve remaining for slaw) thinly and evenly on one side. Top with ginger-panko mixture, pressing gently to adhere.

  2. 2

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add chicken breasts to hot pan, ginger-panko side down, and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner. Transfer chicken to a plate and tent with foil.

    While chicken cooks, cook vegetables.

  3. 3

    Cook the Vegetables

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and edamame to hot pan. Stir often until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.

    Transfer edamame to another mixing bowl. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil, carrot, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Cover, and stir occasionally until carrot is tender, 5-7 minutes.

    If carrot browns too quickly, add 2 Tbsp. water to pan and keep cooking until tender.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Make the Slaw

    Add slaw mix, remaining mayonnaise, and soy sauce to bowl with edamame. Stir to combine.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish
