Title: Al's Chicken Schnitzel
Yield: 3 Servings
Categories: Poultry, Main Dishes

Ingredients:

1 kg Chicken Breasts
4 lg Eggs
2 c Flour
2 c Bread Crumbs(Krummies etc)


All MEASUREMENTS and CURRENCY mentioned below in in METRIC and Australian
currency. In 1 kg you usually get 3 breasts so cut them in half as
described below and 2 halfs usually make a filling meal.Costs about $10 to
serve a family since adult can have 2 halfs with mashed potato and mini
carrots etc and children can have 1. This is my first Recipe so here goes.

Cut Chicken Breasts down the middle into 2 parts. Use Spiked Mallet to beat
chicken till its a mit thinner so it cooks better.Also trim any skin or get
skinless breasts to reduce amount of calories.

Get 3 plates.On the first plate sift flour on to plate. On second
plate,beat eggs and pour onto a deep plate. On third put the bread crumbs
on it.

Dip or cover breasts in flour.Shake off excess.Coat breast with egg either
by brushing on or dipping on plate.Then cover in bread crumbs and put on
plate.

On this is done you are ready to cook them.Now I usually cook mine so that
the bread crumbs brown but dont get burnt so the schnitzel is very
soft.Since I'm not an experienced cook but have to do the cooking for the
family (Im 15) I dont know if Im undercooking them or what but they taste
best that way.Just cook them and when the look cooked cut in half and if
the meat is white(like chicken sould look not the colour of an uncooked
fillet) they are cooked.I cook on medium heat in a frypan with some oil.
Serving Suggestions: In the Colder months this meal is best served with
Mashed potato and gravy as well as carrots and any other vegetables you
like.

In the Warm months my very favourite is a Schnitzel Burger. I put the
lettuce on the bottom,Beetroot next,then the scnitzel,then a thin pineapple
ring,and mayo.Excellent in summer months.2 of these make a filling and
tasty meal.

Well there you go.And comments and critisism would be appreciated. CYA!
