Parmesan and Parsley Crusted Chicken Schnitzels
Prep time: 10 minutes.
Cooking time: 10 minutes
4 single chicken breasts
1 cup flour
Salt and white pepper
2 cups breadcrumbs (preferably fresh)
1/2 cup finely grated fresh parmesan cheese
1 tbs finely grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
Olive oil for shallow frying
Cut the chicken breast in half horizontally to make two equally thick pieces.
Place meat between two sheets of cling film and pound gently with a meat mallet until 5mm thick.
Season flour with salt and pepper.
Beat egg with 1tbsp water. Combine breadcrumbs with parmesan cheese lemon zest and pasley.
Line up flour, egg and breadcrumb bowls in a row. Dip each piece of chicken into flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs.
In a large frying pan heat oil to moderate temperature, not high.
Fry the schnitzels in batches - don't overcrowd the pan. By the time they are golden brown on each side (approximately 3 minutes each side), they will be cooked but still juicy in the middle. Serve with lemon wedges and healthy vegetable salad.
