How we made chicken katsu healthier
• Instead of deep-frying the chicken, we fried it in the minimum amount of oil to brown and crisp, then finished cooking it in the oven, which reduced the fat and saturated fat. • Used rapeseed oil to help lower the saturated fat. • Reduced the salt by using less soy sauce and swapped half the stock needed for the sauce with water. • Cut sugar by including carrots in the sauce for their natural sweetness, so less honey was needed.
