Gluten-Free Potato Chip Chicken Katsu

Active time: 35 minutes Total time: 45 minutes

Katsu is a common Japanese preparation for crispy chicken or pork cutlets. The meat is breaded with panko bread crumbs and then deep fried until golden brown. In this healthier interpretation, we skip the wheat breading and opt for a crust of crushed baked potato chips. The chips give you the same crisp exterior you crave, while making it gluten free.

Instead of deep frying, the chicken breasts are baked in the oven on a rack-lined sheet pan. The rack allows the hot air to circulate, giving your chicken supreme crunch all around. Serve over rice with fresh vegetables and a simplified spin on a punchy tonkatsu sauce made with everyday pantry staples. Save any leftover tonkatsu sauce for brushing on shrimp or chicken before it hits the grill or as a dip for a seared steak.
