Chicken Katsu Don カツ丼

This is the simple Chicken Katsu Don that I prepared for yesterday dinner using homemade dashi stock. A katsudon (カツ丼) is a popular Japanese food, a bowl of rice topped with a deep-fried pork cutlet (or replaced with chicken), egg, and condiments.

Recipe was adapted from Pig Pig's corner with minor changes.
