Absolutely delicious. I did use commercial bread crumbs, but then I doubled dipped (egg, crumbs, egg, crumbs) so it seemed a lot more substantial than normal commercial crumbs. The sauce was great -- next time I will double it at least. Thanks for a keeper.

Easy to follow directions. I added an extra clove of garlic in the egg mixture and did make the sauce, though I am sure next time I won't need it. The breasts were juicy inside with a nice crunchy breading so that we didn't need the sauce. Also, I did let the breasts rest after dipping into breadcrumbs (Thanks, PaulaG) for 15 minutes and the breading adhered nicely. Thanks!

Very good and flavorful. I cut up a whole chicken and used whole wheat bread crumbs. (I keep the heels of my bread loaves in the freezer to use for fresh crumbs when I need it... a tip from Rachel Ray.) The pieces were fairly thick so it took longer to cook. The sauce adds good flavor. My 3-year-old kept saying, "This is soooo good." She had seconds!

Mmmmm I also let the chicken rest after breading it so it would stay on better. I loved how crunchy the breading got. This was easy and everyone enjoyed it. Served it with a side of peas and loved the flavor of the sauce! **Update** I made this again and made a great change. When the butter was melted in step 8, I added about 2 tablespoons fresh onion that I had minced up super super small to it. Let the onion cook until tender, then added the wine and continued. It was really great and lended the sauce excellent flavor and more substance. I love how crunchy the fresh bread crumbs get! I did have to use a bit more oil though or they start to burn.

Ahhh, reminds me of my time in Germany, Thanks! I did marinate the chicken breasts in some fresh squeezed lemon juice to provide more "zing", added some caraway seeds to the egg mixture and also added green onions to the sauce. Thank you PanNan for taking me back! LOL

Yummy! I added a pinch of cayenne to the egg mixture, and also let the chicken rest after breading. Amazing flavor, and the chicken was really tender (I used thighs instead of breasts)! Thanks for sharing!

DH and I made this dish for dinner last night and am so glad we did! It is delicious and easy to prepare--great flavor. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs, as that is what I had on hand, and it worked out perfectly. The chicken was very moist and tender. Loved the nice lemony tang. I would definitely make this recipe again. Made for ZWT4.

What a nice change for the regular schnitzel I usually order from our local German pub. I really did enjoy the sauce as it was so easy to make and so tasty. Actually the entire recipe is pretty easy and straightforward to follow. I will definitely make this one again! Made for ZWT4.

Loved it! The flavor was superb, especially the sauce. I used fresh sourdough bread crumbs and fresh parmesan (not the green can) and pulsed in the food processor. I would have given this a higher mark except that pounding the chicken to 1/4" made it fall apart. I wish I had looked at the photos first as it looks like everyone left it a little thicker. Thanks for the recipe PanNan, I will definitely be making this again. Made for ZWT, please see my rating system as i rate tougher than most.
