    Axel's Note:

    Grandma keeps her Wiener schnitzel recipe a closely guarded secret. Unfortunately for her, it's not that hard to figure out. Anyway, it's a really easy and delicious way to prepare chicken or turkey breasts, or even the traditional veal. My husband demands I make it more than I can stand eating it.

      This is also very very good with pork medallions. Thats the way my family has always done it. Great recipe!

      I never thought of adding lemon juice to my schnitzel recipes, but I tried this and it was really good. The only change I made to the recipe was to add lots of Hungarian paprika to the breadcrumbs.

      This was quite tasty; however, I would recommend adding some salt to the breadcrumbs or salt and pepper the cutlets prior to breading them.
