Chicken Schnitzel

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by hippichiclv

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.
