Grandma's Secret Wiener Schnitzel Recipe

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Axel8741

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!
