Grandma's Secret Wiener Schnitzel Recipe

Grandma's Secret Wiener Schnitzel Recipe created by MarieRynr

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.

    I would've given this a 5 rating, but you just HAVE to dip it in flour first, then egg, then crumbs. The pre-flouring ensures that your delicious crumb coating stays perfectly intact on your fried foods (any of them). So, I did that, and followed rest of your recipe to a TEE. Now MY husbands wants this more than I can stand!

    Yeah, this is a tasty recipe. The last time I made, my hubby said "Hoh yeah, cool!" In an excited way... It's really good, filling, especially with potatoes and a green veggie. Comfort food for all of us, German or otherwise.

    My cooking skills are probably not good enough to make schnitzel since the only place I can actually cook is a cooking games website, but I'll give it a try anyway, my mom used to make schnitzel for me when I was a kid. Been years since then :(

    This was delicious! I had pork cutlets on hand so used them. It turned out thin & tender enough I didn't need a knife. The lemon was a very nice surprise.
