Tips to make the perfect chicken katsu sandwich

    1. Allow the bread to cool down before assembling. This will give the bread a chance to release any trapped heat. This simple trick prevents the sandwich from becoming soft or soggy, ensuring that each bite remains a perfect balance of crispy, creamy, and fresh. Plus, it’d give you a beautifully uniform and photogenic sandwich. We eat with our eyes first, after all!
    2. Add tartar sauce for a zesty kick. This sauce isn’t just for fish and chips—it’s a versatile condiment that pairs beautifully with the crispy, savory chicken katsu. Its creamy profile also complements the chicken and Japanese milk bread perfectly.
    3. Use chicken thighs for juicier meat. Make sure the internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C) when you fry the chicken.
