Easy (Chicken) Schnitzel

Set-up for preparation

Two packets of chicken cutlets (2 cutlets per pack)

1 egg, scrambled

1 cup seasoned bread crumbs

Place egg, and bread crumbs into separate bowls as shown in picture above

Cut chicken into thin slices

Pound chicken flat with meat hammer

Dip each piece, first into egg, then into bread crumbs, then set gently on plate.

Take a flat skillet with high walls, add enough canola oil to cover an inch of bottom. No more.

Important NOTE: Oil burns quickly, so this step has to be closely monitored. Fire can happen if the temperature of the oil gets too high. Constantly maintain an even temperature by lowering and raising heat. The oil should never be more than 350F as Canola catches fire at 390F. Use a meat thermometer to monitor your heat.

Place each piece of coated chicken gently into hot oil. Cook on both sides for 3 – 4 minutes each or until golden. Lay onto paper towel to absorb oil when it comes out of pan.
