My DH was in Germany when he was in the army and he loves German food. This recipe comes from a very well known restaurant in Portland, Oregon called the Rheinlander. I have substituted chicken for veal.

I'm not going to rate, but this is not Jager Schnitzel. Jager Schnitzel is pork or veal cutlet pounded thin and breaded with a delicious creamy mushroom gravy.
