A: A bitzel of schnitzel.

Inspired by a recent repeat of Foodlovers Guide to Australia, I declared Thursday night schnitzel night and went to town with wholesome European madness. Having spent what is decidedly extravagant amounts of money on prepared schnitzel from the deli, this is definitely something that can be a cheap expense if one can be bothered with slicing the chicken breast then doing the whole flour-egg-breadcrumb thing (which on most weeknights is not me).

Managed to get 6 schnitzels from 2 chicken breasts, which fed man and I and left a leftover portion for 1. Perfect.

Chicken schnitzel


2 chicken breasts, sliced into 3 lengthways and flattened out to look schnitzel-ly.

1 egg, beated with 2 tbsp water

handful of well-seasoned plain flour

handful of breadcrumbs (I use Panko, for nothing more than the fact that I love saying its name), mixed with half a handful of parmesan, grated


Working on one piece of chicken at a time, dip first into the flour, then egg, then breadcrumb mix.

Shallow fry for 5 minutes on each side and drain.
