Directions

Chicken Schnitzel with green asparagus, button mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower and buttered breadcrumbsChicken Schnitzel with green asparagus, button mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower and buttered breadcrumbs
  • Add breadcrumbs, garlic, paprika powder and origanum to a bowl and mix them well
  • Add eggs to a bowl, whip them with a whisk and mix them with the milk
  • Carefully half the chicken breasts widthwise making sure you don't separate them completely, stop cutting about 5mm / 0.2 inch before the end of the breast
  • Flap chicken breasts open and turn them upside down
  • Place each on a large chopping board and using a mallet pound them for about a minute to tenderize and thin them to a thickness of about 5mm / 0.2 inch
  • Sprinkle with a little turmeric powder and cumin powder and then spice them liberally with salt and pepper
  • Coat them on both sides with a little flour
  • Dunk each Schnitzel in the egg and milk mixture and then cover it on all sides with the breadcrumbs
  • Add olive oil to a large frying pan, turn the hotplate to medium setting and heat up the oil, making sure it does not begin to smoke
  • Fry each schnitzel for 2 to 3 minutes on each side till they have become golden brown on the outside

Take of the heat and serve with hot chips, potato salad or like I did with a healthy combo of green asparagus, button mushrooms, cauliflower and broccoli.
