A Schnitzel is a thin slice of veal or other light meat that is coated in breadcrumbs and fried. It’s a quintessential German dish. It is traditionally served with a spatzle and gravy, pommes (fries) or a German vinegar-based potato salad called Schwäbischer Kartoffelsalat.
You don’t need to go to Germany for this tasty treat. We have a simple recipe that you can make at home! All you need is a cooktop and a few ingredients:
2 cups dried breadcrumbs
2 tbs lemon rind finely grated
2 tbs fresh flat-leaf parsley finely chopped
2 garlic cloves crushed
4 chicken breast fillets
1/3 cup plain flour
1 egg lightly beaten
2 tbs milk
2 tbs olive oil
1. Veal is the traditional meat of choice for schnitzels, but chicken, turkey or even pork also works well. In this recipe, we’re cooking Chicken Schnitzels in Lemon and Parsley. Combine breadcrumbs, lemon rind, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium sized bowl.
2. Fillet chicken into schnitzels. Toss chicken in flour, shake away excess.
3. Dip chicken in combined egg and milk, then in crumbs, pressing on lightly. Heat oil in a large, non-stick pan. Cook schnitzels over medium heat until golden and cooked through.
4. Season schnitzels with salt and pepper, serve with lemon wedges and salad or vegetables.
Remember, don’t be tempted to overcrowd the pan or you risk them going soggy. If you’re using the Kleenmaid 90cm GCTEK9020 electronic gas cooktop, you’ll find that the cooktop also features auto reignition. This means if the flame is extinguished the cooktop will reignite itself after determining that it is safe to do so. Such a neat feature!
