Sometimes it's better to fry....!

A couple of months ago I made my Katsu Chicken Curry for me & Mr W on a Saturday night. It had been bugging me for ages that it didn't look quite how I wanted it to because I had oven cooked it...so  I decided to fry it instead. Well it worked & not only does it look better it tastes better! Crispy on the outside & juicy on the inside & I am so pleased with it!😊
