Schnitzel is an Austrian dish made with meat (beef, chicken or pork) pounded thin, coated in flour, egg and breadcrumbs then fried until golden and crisp. Here a simple recipe by Alida Ryder to give a try.
For this dish you’ll need the following ingredients:
- Chicken breasts
- Garlic powder
- Panko breadcrumbs
- Black pepper
- Dried oregano
Begin by placing the chicken in between two sheets of parchment paper and flatten with a meat mallet or rolling pin. Place flour, salt, paprika and garlic powder into a wide bowl suitable for dipping the chicken in. Whisk eggs into a second bowl and combine the breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and oregano into another. Coat the chicken first into the flour, then in the beaten eggs and finally in the seasoned breadcrumbs.
Heat vegetable oil in a large pan or skillet over medium high heat then carefully lay the chicken into the hot oil and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown and crisp. Remove the cooked schnitzel from the pan and allow to drain on a paper towel lined plate then serve with lemon wedges and sides of your choice.
