How to Make Chicken Schnitzel

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cut 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.
  • 2Place 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)
  • 3Heat butter and oil in a skillet, on medium-high.
  • 4Dredge each piece of chicken in flour, then dip into egg mixture, then dredge in breadcrumb mixture.
  • 5Saute breaded chicken piece in skillet 3-4 minutes on each side, until dark golden brown. Serve with lemon wedges.
