A very quick and delicious meal that, and this is a bonus, looks attractive as well. I'm sure this is a recipe that can be adapted in many ways. It came from a Woman's Day magazine. My prep time is merely guess work. I guess I should have timed myself.

We really enjoyed these. They were flavorful and filling. Have never had schnitzel so don't know how true to form these are. They were easier to make than I thought (I tend to shy away from recipes with very many steps). I was surprised that the chicken was not the least bit dry (I am very good at overcooking chicken!). I will serve these again but not often because of the fat content. Thanks for posting this!

This is a HUGE family, friend, and visitor favorite at my house. I was so glad to see it posted here! When I make it I have to double it so I get to eat some too!! My little sister just requested I make it for her birthday. My husband also enjoys leftovers with cheese as a sandwich the next day. I do find it a bit time consuming and messy (dip, dip, dip) but WELL worth the effort!

I have made this several times and I think it is delicious. I tend to make the noodles later in the recipe, however, or else they always get done much more quickly than the chicken. It is a great dish!
