The Makings of Chicken Katsudon

To create this culinary masterpiece, you’ll need some key ingredients. Tender chicken thighs, seasoned with salt and pepper, coated in flour, egg, and panko breadcrumbs for that irresistible crunch. The dashi sauce, made from a combination of water, Hondashi, soy sauce, mirin, and sugar, adds a burst of umami flavor to the dish. Onions add a touch of sweetness and depth, while scrambled eggs bring a luscious, velvety texture to the final creation. And of course, steamed rice serves as the perfect canvas to soak up all the deliciousness.
