This is a very fast and delicious meal. You can freeze flattened chicken breasts for quick meal idea. My husband made this for me and I insisted on putting it on here for all of you to try.....I LOVE IT. Also, try using 1/2 bread crumbs and 1/2 panko instead of one or the other. It adds great texture.

Mmm tasty. Prior to making this I had only eaten pork schnitzel. Well this was much better. I found the process very messy (pounding, dipping, frying) and labour intensive so not sure how often I would make this but the result made it worth it. We enjoyed the chicken with lentils and salad.

I have grown up on chicken schnitzel and always felt that it was a boring dish, only for use as a back up emergency meal. Now that I am married, my husband (who grew up sans home cooked meals) thinks its great and will eat it happily any time. I like to sprinkle a little garlic powder on the chicken before flipping it over. I really hate having to pound chicken breasts, so I either by thin sliced chicken or I cut my breasts thin. It's easier to do when they are partially frozen. I still think it is a back up meal, but my family is thrilled to see it when I feel like taking a break.

Excellent and so easy! Substituted a bit of olive oil spray for the butter. Can't wait to try it with the panko.
