    1. To make the sauce: Stir together the Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, soy sauce and pepper to taste. Set aside.
    2. Heat oil in deep-fat fryer to 180 degrees C.
    3. Place flour and panko breadcrumbs onto separate plates and season with salt and pepper. Place the beaten egg in a medium bowl. Dredge chicken into flour, then egg and lastly breadcrumbs.
    4. Fry breaded chicken in hot oil until golden brown and no longer pink in centre, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a kitchen towel-lined plate to absorb excess oil.
