What we’re gonna be making today is chicken katsudon!
What is katsudon?
Katsudon is a Japanese rice bowl dish consisting of katsu (breaded and fried pork/chicken cutlets), eggs, katsu sauce, and other ingredients.
If you haven’t seen my recipe on how to make chicken katsu (chicken cutlets) yet, click here!
So, what we’re gonna be doing is cooking the chicken katsu in the sauce that we’re gonna make. We’re gonna let the onions cook in the dashi, and then we’re gonna add, lastly, the scrambled eggs on top.
And we don’t want to cook the eggs all the way. You want them to be cooked about halfway so they’re a little bit runny.
And then, we’re gonna serve it over a bed of rice!
Tips for making delicious katsudon
One of the things that I like to put on it is shichimi, which is a blend of seven ingredients to make a spicy pepper. It adds a little bit of kick.

Dashi can add so much flavor and umami. And if you’ve tried various types and brands, you may be quite familiar with the difference in can make in food.
