I love chicken schnitzels but I am sick of buying ones from the supermarket or butchers that just don’t taste right.
So, I have made my own for the first time & I will never buy store brought ones again!
We had our chicken schnitzels on a homemade chicken & bacon burger & oh my, they were delicious!
There are 4 people that I made these burgers for & only needed 1 chicken breast.
Not only is it better to make your own but it is cheap too!
You just have to place the chicken breast in between 2 freezer bags & pound it flat with a meat mallet.
In a food processor, put some bread in it & blitz till it makes fine breadcrumbs.
Set up 3 shallow dishes.
The first one with 1/2 cup of plain flour.
The second with 2 eggs & a dash of milk whisked together.
In the last one, put a cup of breadcrumbs.
Cut the flattened chicken breast into 4 pieces.
Coat each piece with flour….
Then the egg wash….
And lastly the breadcrumbs (make sure you pat the breadcrumbs in so they stick)
Heat up some olive oil in a fry pan (about1cm high of oil).
Cook the chicken on each side for about 2 minutes.
Serve with vegies, chips, salad, or as we did, on a burger..
I just toasted some Turkish bread & cooked some bacon.
The burger was layered with lettuce, mayo, onion, tomato, cheese, chicken schnitzel, bbq sauce & Australian mustard.
Oh, it was delicious!
