Lazy Slow Cooker Japanese Style Curry

My hubby and I lived in Okinawa, Japan so Japanese food makes an appearance on our dinner table fairly often.  We used to eat at a place called CoCo Ichibanya (CoCos) while we lived on the island because the curry there was absolutely to die for.  What I make is no where near the caliber of Cocos, but it's still pretty delicious and incredibly easy to make. This is recipe is so easy to make that I feel lazy doing it!

Curry Ingredients:
  • Curry Sauce Mix (found in the international foods section)
  • A bag of frozen stir fry veggies (thawed)
  • 2 Cups of Water
  • 3 Potatoes (quartered)
  • 2 Cups of Cooked Rice
  • Cut up the curry sauce mix into smaller portions.  This is what it looks like in the package: 
  • Put all of the ingredients, not including the rice, in a slower cooker then stir.
  • Cook on low for 4-5 hours. Stir, then serve with rice.

We like to top our curry with Chicken Katsu.  This is very easy to make, but it doesn't make the recipe as "lazy" by doing so!

  • Chicken Breast
  • 1/4 Cup Panko (Japanese Breadcrumbs, also found in the international foods section)
  • 1/4 Cup Whole Wheat Flower
  • 1 Egg
  • Tablespoon of Water
  • Tablespoon Olive Oil

  • Lay your chicken between saran wrap, so that chicken bits don't get everywhere.  
  • Use a meat tenderizer and beat your chicken breast so that it is thin.  Cut the chicken breast in half.
  • Put the Panko, Egg + water and flour in separate bowls. 
  • Dredge the chicken in flour, then lay the chicken on a plate.  Put the plate of chicken in the freezer for roughly 5 minutes
  • Next put the chicken through the egg+water mixture, then the Panko.
  • Warm your olive oil over medium heat, then cook the chicken in the pan for 5 minutes per side. 
  • Assemble your meal: place the rice on one side of the  plate & the curry on the other then lay the chicken katsu on top of the meal. 
 Enjoy my lazy Japanese Style Curry recipe!
