  1. Slice the chicken breast horizontally into two slices. Cut each slice into 2 equal-sized pieces. Season with the salt and black pepper. Leave to stand for 10 minutes.
  2. In a frying pan, heat up cooking oil for deep-frying. Ideal temperature is about 180°C.
  3. Dip each piece of the chicken into the egg whites, then immediately coat it with the panko. Shake off the excess.
  4. Dip the chicken into the white egg again, and then coat with the panko for the second time. Make sure that the chicken is evenly coated with a thick layer of panko. Repeat the same for the remaining chicken pieces.
  5. Once the oil is fully heated, gently drop each piece of the chicken into the pot and deep fry until both sides turn golden brown.
  6. Dish out the chicken onto a plate lined with paper towels.
  7. Cut the chicken into thin strips, and serve immediately with steamed rice and tonkatsu sauce.
