Ingredient Substitution Guide


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

2. Butterfly the chicken breast, brush with beaten egg and dust with the breadcrumbs. Deep-fry in a preheated fryer at 180°C or on the stove until golden brown (about 3 minutes).

3. Transfer the chicken to an oven tray and cook in the oven for an additional 3 minutes.

4. Combine rice with coconut milk in a rice cooker. Heat until cooked through. If you don't have a rice cooker, in a pan over medium heat, add the rice and coconut milk, topping up with about 100ml of water, or more as desired. Bring to the boil, reduce to a simmer and cook covered until done.

5. Mix the sesame seeds and sea salt together and set aside.

6. To plate, place some rice in the centre of a salad bowl, add the chicken cut into strips, the kimchi and pickled carrots. Layer the Kewpie mayo and tonkatsu sauce in a criss-cross pattern. Finish by sprinkling torn nori leaves, spring onion, coriander and a little of the salt-and-sesame mixture. Serve immediately.
