    Lavender Lynn's Note:

    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.

      Delicious! I followed the recipe except that I added a cup of broth to the sauce and also a touch of paprika to the chicken.

      Good, but not very much like any jager schnitzel I have eaten in Germany. Also, definitely need to make more of the sauce. And I subbed pork chops for the chicken.
