{Recipe} Chicken Schnitzel

I love chicken. You can do so much with it. Have it plain or dress it up.
Today, I dressed it up.

Serves 4
4 Chicken breasts
flour, for dusting
2 eggs, lightly beaten
280g of fresh breadcrumbs
salt and black pepper
olive oil for shallow frying

Cut each chicken breast in hale, cutting diagonally through the middle to make 2 thin fillets. Place between 2 sheets of cling film and press lightly to flatten slightly.
Place flour, eggs and breadcrumbs in separate bowls. Season breadcrumbs with salt and pepper.
Working one at a time, dip the fillets in flour then egg and breadcrumbs. Make sure they are well coated. Place on a plate on baking paper and put in the fridge for 10 minutes.
Heat two tablespoons of oil in a non stick pan and cook in batches. Cook for 2-3 mins on each side or until golden brown and cooked through.
Serve with mash and veg or beans.

This went down a treat in my house and I pretty sure it's going to become one of our monthly dinners.

Happy cooking!!
