Chicken Schnitzel

An easy dinner idea and you can serve it with rice, potatoes, spinach, vegetables, over a salad or turn it into a sandwich. This is a great recipe and we probably make it once or twice a month in our household. Also, if you prefer pork or beef feel free to use that instead of chicken.

Ingredients (for 8 pieces of chicken schnitzel):

  • 4 pieces of single boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut in half crosswise
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 cups plain bread crumbs
  • basil, salt and pepper to taste
  • Oil for frying (you should have about 1/3″ oil in your skillet)


  • Place each piece of chicken between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound them. I like using the plastic foil so the meat juices don’t cover my kitchen, I find this the cleanest way to pound the meat
  • Season the meat with basil, salt and pepper
  • Set your dipping / coating station : beat the eggs in a wide shallow bowl, add another bowl/plate with flour and one more with the bread crumbs (sometimes I do add some dry herbs in the bread crumbs like basil or parsley for more flavor)
  • Heat the oil in a skillet over low heat
  • Start coating the meat: flour – eggs – bread crumbs
  • Cook the schnitzel on both sides until golden brown
  • Transfer the schnitzel on a plate lined with paper towel for few minutes before serving so it drains some of the frying oil
