    Chicken Curry Katsu Rice Burger


    This recipe is long overdue. Therefore, I decided to take a teeny weeny break from sharing Whole 30 recipes, in order to share with you this delectable recipe. I made this ultimate comfort food a couple of weeks before we started on our Whole 30 journey. Honestly, this is the meal that I’d cheat with now that we are done with the program. 

    This recipe came about on the fateful day where I could not decide if I wanted Curry Katsu Don or a burger. The best solution was to have a little bit of both, and the best of both worlds. The family and I were sure glad I did that. lol! 

    Sure, it can get a little messy eating it. But hey, it’s always fun to be able to play with your food right? The husband was all “Mmmmmms” and “Ahhhhs” while enjoying his rice burger. He was unable to verbalize his delight, but his sound effects said it all for him. I couldn’t get enough of the burger, and secretly wished that my kids would not finish their portion so I can have their left-overs. Alias, I wasn’t that lucky. ๐Ÿ™‚
