Guilty Chicken Shnitzels

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Malva

I call these baked chicken breasts "guilty" because I'm always looking for fat-free recipes. But it's quick and simple and a great people-pleaser - can't beat that when you're pressed for time. Suggestion: something a little piquant, like chutney or a salad with vinaigrette dressing, highlights this dish.

Fixed this tonight for dinner and we really enjoyed the flavor blend. I would have liked them a bit more crispy, however, perhaps it's my oven! Will make this again, thanks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, soy sauce, and optional curry powder.
  2. In another bowl or a plastic bag, combine the dry ingredients well.
  3. Put the shnitzels in the mayonnaise bowl and stir them around gently, lightly coating them with the mixture.
  4. Transfer the shnitzels to the bowl or bag containing the dry ingredients, one or two at a time, making sure to coat them well. Shake off any excess flour mixture.
  5. Line a large baking pan with foil or baking paper for easy cleanup. Place the prepared chicken pieces in the pan, leaving some space between them.
  6. Drizzle a little olive (or other) oil over the pieces. This will bring out the moisture; the shnitzels, even coated with mayo, will otherwise be dry. You don't need much, just a light drizzle.
  7. Bake the shnitzels at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
