In recent years, Ireland has become known as a serious food destination but as a nation who also knows how to have a good time we still have a few dirty food secrets. Take, for example, the 3-in-1 – an infamous concoction of curry sauce, chips and fried rice – a favourite of late-night Dublin. While I’m not comparing this katsu curry to the 3-in-1, it does have similar qualities: spicy curry sauce and crispy chicken all served with sticky rice. Let’s just say it hits the spot, late night or not.

First make the sauce: Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a pan over a medium heat, add the onion and fry for 6 minutes before stirring in the garlic and ginger; fry for 1–2 minutes. Sprinkle in the curry powder, turmeric, chilli powder and tomato purée and stir to coat the vegetables.
Pour in the chicken stock and bring to a steady simmer. Cook for 8 minutes and then add rice wine vinegar, honey and soy sauce. Cook for a further 3 minutes until the sauce has thickened and then blitz until smooth with a hand-held stick blender.
Put the chicken breasts on a chopping board, place a piece of parchment paper on top and, using a rolling pin, bash the breasts to thin them to a thickness of about 2–3cm/ 3/4" -1".
Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Whisk together the egg and soy sauce in a wide bowl and put the breadcrumbs in a separate bowl. Remove the parchment paper and dip each breast in the seasoned flour, then in the egg mixture and finally, the panko breadcrumbs.
Fry the crumbed chicken in the oil for 5–6 minutes until golden brown and cooked all the way through. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper.
Slice the chicken and serve with the cooked sticky rice, spring onions and a generous amount of curry sauce.

  • Thanks for the feedback! A lot of time, it simply to keep the video short and simple but totally take on board what you’re saying. Will keep it in mind in the future!

    Great recipe. Empty plates and requests for more from all members of the household! Lovely crisp coating on the chicken and the sauce was really flavoursome. Will definitely make again.
