Chicken katsu comes to us from Japan, land of the Rising Sun and the most delicious cuisines (in your humble description writer's humble opinion, of course). But the amazing Japanese dishes go beyond just sushi and ramen. Here, it's the Japanese take on fried chicken, crisp and delightful like fried chicken 'round the world. The chicken is topped with a delicate ginger-honey sauce, which will have you throwing your old BBQ sauces in the trash.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a

Cook the Rice
Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.
Bring a small pot with rice, garlic, soy sauce, a pinch of salt, and 1 ½ cups water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes.
Remove from burner. Stir in white portions of green onions. Cover and set aside.
While rice cooks, prepare chicken.
Prepare the Chicken
Pat chicken breasts dry. Cover chicken with plastic wrap and use a heavy object to pound to an even ¼" thickness. Season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Place panko on a plate or in a bowl. Place chicken on panko and dredge both sides, pressing gently to adhere.
Roast the Mushrooms
Place mushrooms on prepared baking sheet. Toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.
Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until tender, 10-12 minutes.
While mushrooms roast, cook chicken.
Cook the Chicken
Line a plate with a paper towel.
Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 3 Tbsp. olive oil.
Carefully, add chicken to hot pan and cook until golden brown and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-4 minutes per side.
Transfer chicken to towel-lined plate.
Make Sauce and Finish Dish
Combine honey and ginger in a mixing bowl until ginger is dissolved.
