How to Make Chicken Schnitzel

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut chicken breasts in half, lengthwise, halving the thickness. Place a half in a gallon zipper bag or between two pieces of plastic wrap. With a meat hammer, pound out until 1/8" thick. Repeat with each breast half. Often times I will do this the night before and marinate the chicken in Italian dressing overnight in the fridge. It just adds an extra layer of flavor.
  2. Place flour, salt, and pepper in a dish.
    Mix egg and milk in a separate dish.
    Mix bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, paprika, and thyme in a third dish.

    (I use 8" baking pans or pie plates for all 3)
  3. Heat butter and oil in a skillet, on medium-high.
  4. Dredge each piece of chicken in flour, then dip into egg mixture, then dredge in breadcrumb mixture.
  5. Saute breaded chicken piece in skillet 3-4 minutes on each side, until dark golden brown. Serve with lemon wedges.
