Chicken Schnitzel


Schnitzel is Austrian in origin; it was traditionally made with veal (known as Wiener schnitzel) or pork. Schnitzel is a simple, budget-friendly dish to prepare I make it once or twice a month because it’s so simple and tasty and kids favorite.


Schnitzel is often served with French fries and lemon wedges. A squeeze of lemon juice really suits schnitzel.


I was introduces to Schnitzel while vacationing, in Europe, made of pork, later few times with turkey. But never had a chance to taste Chicken Schnitzel though.
