Shredded Chicken Katsu Burgers

Japanese inspired Katsu curry is a popular dish all over the world. In this recipe, we’ve twisted up this favourite by slow cooking and shredding Katsu flavoured chicken and stuffing it into burgers!

Katsu can be complicated, but we’ve simplified things into a slow cooker recipe that uses a small number of ingredients and has a short prep time! A good quality curry powder is key here. We use medium curry powder, which keeps this dish nice and mild. If you want a bit more spice, you could use a hot curry powder, or just add a 1/2tsp of chilli powder.

After slow cooking, it’s just a case of shredding up the chicken, stirring well and stuffing into burger buns of your choice. We loaded this into sesame seed burger buns, added coleslaw and served with parmesan fries.
