I have grown up on chicken schnitzel and always felt that it was a boring dish, only for use as a back up emergency meal. Now that I am married, my husband (who grew up sans home cooked meals) thinks its great and will eat it happily any time. I like to sprinkle a little garlic powder on the chicken before flipping it over. I really hate having to pound chicken breasts, so I either by thin sliced chicken or I cut my breasts thin. It's easier to do when they are partially frozen. I still think it is a back up meal, but my family is thrilled to see it when I feel like taking a break.
This is a perfect recipe written as is for two,but I used four flattened chicken breasts,(since my SO takes leftovers to work)and left the rest of the ingredients the same.I didn't have any seasoned bread crumbs so I added two teaspoons of italian seasoning.Instead of frying them in butter, I used butter flavored Crisco it worked just great.As for my sides I made Recipe#30444 and Recipe#52762 and all of this together made a very enjoyable meal.This will be made again,thank you for posting."Keep Smiling:)"
I was gonna post my recipe, but than saw thiat yours is pretty much the same, so there is no need. This makes for a nice golden chicken schnitzel, with a crunchy outside and a moist middle. I usually use plain panko and add seasoning of my choice, such as paprika, some parmesan or some herbs. I also coat the filets in flour before dipping them in the egg mixture, but otherwise I don't change a thing. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

I live in Las Vegas now, but I am originally from Pennsylvania....Philly area. I really miss the good food from back there, because the food out here is awful. People stop making homey food the farther west you get or something. I am a housewife and mother of two. My husband and I love our new little additions to our family. My favorite cookbooks are little bits and pieces of everyone else's. I like to make recipes that people have been making for years in their family and start a tradition with mine.
