Turkey Katsu

This breaded Turkey cutlet is an easy way add some crispy crunch to your dinner table. Kids will love the kicked-up ketchup!


  • 1 boneless, skinless Ontario Turkey Breast, (about 1 ¼ lb/600 g)

  • ¾ tsp each salt and fresh ground pepper, divided

  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 cups panko bread crumbs

  • ½ cup canola oil

  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced

Japanese ketchup

  • ½ cup ketchup

  • 1 tbsp each Worcestershire sauce and rice vinegar

  • 4 tsp sodium-reduced soy sauce

  • 1 small garlic clove, minced or rasped


  • Using a chef’s knife, thinly slice Turkey breast crosswise on a slight angle to make small cutlets. Using a meat mallet, pound each cutlet slightly to even out thinly. Place on a large plate and sprinkle both sides evenly with some of the salt and pepper.

  • Place flour on one plate. Beat eggs in shallow dish, and place bread crumbs in another. Season all three with a pinch each of salt and pepper.

  • Dredge each Turkey piece into flour first, then egg, letting excess drip off. Coat both sides well with panko crumbs and set aside. Repeat with remaining Turkey.

  • In a large non-stick skillet, heat 1/3 cup (75 mL) of the oil over medium high heat and cook Turkey pieces in batches, adding remaining oil as needed, turning once, about 2 minutes per side, until golden brown. Serve with Japanese Ketchup and sprinkle with green onions.
