Oh yes, I have another schnitzel recipe to share. I think I have a few more to post after this one because we've had so many good recipes! This one was almost a fail. I have not quite figured out how to make notoriously stick-prone food in my stainless steel pans. I opt for my nonstick because it's just the safe way to go. I normally make my breadcrumb coated schnitzel in the stainless steel with no issues, but man alive, these potato-crusted chicken breasts wanted to stick so badly. Once I switched to my nonstick, all of the schnitzel turned out beautifully golden and crispy the way it should have in the beginning. It was definitely more of a labor of love than just doing bread crumbs, but totally worth it every once in a blue moon, for sure!

What you need:
  • 1.3 lbs. waxy potatoes, peeled
  • 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan
  • 5 Tbsp. bread crumbs
  • 1 to 2 lb. chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 4 to 6 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Lemon, cut into wedges
  1. Grate peeled potatoes onto a clean kitchen towel. Bundle the towel up and squeeze as much liquid from the potatoes as possible.
  2. Put potatoes into a large casserole dish. Add Parmesan and bread crumbs and stir together.
  3. Add flour to a plate. In a bowl, whisk together eggs.
  4. Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  5. Dip chicken in flour, then eggs, then potato mixture, pressing slightly to help it stick to the chicken.
  6. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  7. Fry breaded chicken for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Move to a foil-lined baking sheet. Repeat until all chicken has fried in the skillet. Note: If any pieces of potatoes remain in the skillet, be sure to remove them before adding the next batch of chicken. Add oil as needed.
  8. Bake schnitzel in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 8 minute or until cooked through.
  9. Serve with lemon wedges.

    My family loves schnitzel and we have had it so many different ways. One of my favorite ways is Oven Baked Schnitzel Burgers and I especially love the paprika added to it. I would also love to try this vegetarian version for Eggplant Schnitzel from It's a Healthy Lifestyle.
