Aside from my interest in fashion, I also love to cook! But because of my active, busy lifestyle, I end up going to drive-thru because of the lack of time to prepare my meal. Good thing Bounty Fresh brings us Top Torikatsu, the first in a brand new line of heat-and-eat items for people who lack time or the know-how to prepare meals but nonetheless appreciate great-tasting chicken dishes.
When I first saw this at our local supermarket, it caught my attention instantly because of its Japanese themed packaging. I really love Japanese food, especially Katsu! Top Torikatsu is made from the choicest, 100% chicken breasts and is coated with crispy breadcrumbs for that extra crunch and texture. But what makes Top Torikatsu distinct is that it comes in two flavors: Classic and Cheese & Chives. The Classic variant is my personal favorite, it is filled with delectable mayonnaise, while Cheese & Chives variant oozes with savory cream cheese and chives bits, so no need to add ketchup!
This is the most important of all, it’s easy to cook; just fry it for three minutes! You can also check at the back of the packaging that there are only four steps to prepare this!
First, pour cooking oil in the frying pan. It says in the instruction to pour 1 cup (250ml) but it depends on you if you want to deep fry it. However, if you’re using a Polytetrafluoroethylene (commonly known as Teflon) pan, you don’t have to put much oil.
Let it reach 170/180 degrees Celsius
Carefully place two to three pieces (depends on the size of your pan) of frozen breaded Katsu in the pan.
Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, turning once until product is golden brown.
Remove the Katsu from the pan and allow excess oil to drain. You can use paper napkins to absorb the oil from the Katsu.
And that’s it! It took me less than 5 minutes to prepare this meal! Top Torikatsu is not only delicious, but also takes a little effort to prepare. Even a person with the least cooking skills can impress himself or herself with this tasty, quick, and effortless dish.
While preparing this, I’m also waiting for Trice to arrive and I can’t wait for her to try this, I’m sure she’ll love it!
With its 100% pure, quality chicken goodness that only Asia’s Best Bounty Fresh can provide, along with its unique flavors and ease of preparation, Top Torikatsu is definitely something that you will love in an instant.
