  1. Cut each chicken breast in half lengthways to create 4 fillets. Place each fillet between 2 sheets of baking paper and beat with a rolling pin to even out thickness.
  2. Place flour, egg and breadcrumbs into 3 separate bowls. Coat 1 fillet in flour, then dip into egg, then coat with breadcrumbs. Place fillet on a plate. Repeat with remaining fillets. Heat enough oil in a medium frying pan so that it is 1cm deep. Fry chicken for 3-4 minutes each side over medium heat or until chicken is cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.
  3. Combine mayonnaise and curry powder in a small bowl.
  4. To serve, spread mayonnaise mixture onto 2 bread slices. Top with lettuce, chicken and tonkatsu, then top with sourdough. Repeat this process to make 4 sandwiches. Serve.
