Learn how to make Chicken Schnitzel that’s crispy, juicy, additional crispy and fast to prepare. A family favorite that’s impressive and delicious!

Schnitzel is something I matured with, it was one of those meals that was a staple at our home. The great thing about schnitzel is that it can be made with any kind of meat, I have made it with pork in the past, with veal and as seen here with chicken.

What is Schnitzel

Schnitzel is a popular German meal however I think it’s popular in pretty much all of Europe.

My preferred thing about making schnitzel is pounding the heck out of the meat. It’s a way to get your aggravations, nevertheless try to do it in a gentle way, if that’s possible because you do not want to tear the meat. But anyway, it’s a lot of fun, believe me.

What kind of meat do you use

Traditionally schnitzel is made with thin pieces of veal chops. It’s not always easy to find veal in grocery stores, unless you go to a butcher.

Nevertheless, I like utilizing skinless boneless chicken breasts or pork tenderloin to make schnitzel.

How to make Chicken Schnitzel

To make chicken schnitzel you make it the exact same method you would make a veal schnitzel or pork schnitzel. Pound the chicken out so that it’s extremely thin, about 1/4 of an inch in thickness.

You then bread the chicken by very first dredging it through flour, then egg wash and finally breadcrumbs. Fry the chicken schnitzel in a hot frying pan with about 1/4 inch of oil, on both sides.

You could always deep fry this, and I’ve seen them deep fried in restaurants, but it really isn’t needed. Simply put a little oil at the bottom of a skillet, enough that the oil comes half method up the schnitzel but not completely submerged in it. They likewise do not take long to fry either since the meat is thin, but you always end up with juicy meat and actually crispy on the outside.

Serve schnitzel with these sides:

  • Mashed Potatoes
