This crispy chicken schnitzel recipe is a real favorite with the whole family. Crisp on the outside, tender in the middle. Delicious!
Ingredients – chicken breasts – flour – egg – breadcrumbs – grated parmesan – garlic salt – dried Italian herbs – olive oil – butter
The best way to cook chicken schnitzel is to fry it. I like to use a combination of oil and butter for the best flavor/crispiness combination.
To bake chicken schnitzel, you need to cook it in a hot oven (200C / 400F) for around 20 minutes. You may want to spray it with cooking oil, or place on an oiled baking sheet first.
There are so many possible chicken schnitzel sides! Traditionally, a wiener schnitzel is served with a wedge of lemon top and a side serving of potato salad and sauerkraut.
Fun fact: schnitzel was originally served with lemon 'back in the olden days' to cover up the smell of meat going bad! Today we just like the taste of it 🙂
