CRISPY CHICKEN SCHNITZEL

Here’s a quick and easy chicken schnitzel recipe for a crowd-pleasing favorite. Longève Plain Breadless Crumbs in place of standard bread crumbs keeps the carbs low and the protein high, and yields a super-crunchy, golden brown crust. We love these served hot from the skillet with plenty of fresh lemons for squeezing!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts (4 pieces)
  • 2 tsp. salt

  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour (or sub gluten-free)*
  • 2 eggs, beaten with 1 Tbsp. water
  • 2 cups Longève Plain Breadless Crumbs
  • ¼ cup Vegetable oil for frying

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place chicken breast halves, two at a time, inside a gallon-sized zip-lock bag. Using a meat mallet, rolling pin, or the bottom of a heavy saucepan, carefully pound the chicken breasts to a uniform thickness of about ¼-inch. Remove chicken from bag and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Place flour, eggs and Breadless crumbs in three separate medium-sized bowls. Place one pounded chicken breast first in the flour, turning to coat on both sides. Shake off the excess flour and dip into the egg mixture. Coat evenly and allow excess to drip off of the chicken before placing in the bowl of Breadless crumbs. Press chicken firmly into crumbs to coat evenly on both sides. Repeat the process with the remaining chicken.
  3. Add vegetable oil to a wide, heavy skillet to a depth of approximately 1 – 2 inches. Heat oil over medium-high heat until it begins to shimmer. Carefully place two chicken breasts in the hot oil and fry for 2 – 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown all over. Remove chicken from oil and let drain on a wire rack set over a sheet pan. Repeat process for remaining chicken breasts.
  4. Serve hot or at room temperature with plenty of fresh lemon wedges for squeezing.

*KEEPING IT GLUTEN FREE Switching out the AP flour for gluten-free and using our Breadless Crumbs is an easy way to make a perfect gluten-free entrée for those who miss the crispy crunch of traditional chicken schnitzel.
