Chicken Schnitzel.

This recipe couldn't get any easier. The versatility of this recipe comes from what you serve it with. Salad (especially rocket) , roasted root veg, chips, roast tomatoes, greens. They ALL work with this! So it's great to go with what you have in your cupboards. I love it with roasted tomatoes, rocket and a bit of balsamic as those are the flavours I adore! Kids absolutely love this. They can get involved in the process too! Serves 2 Ingredients: 2 chicken breast Breadcrumbs from 2 slices of bread (bought or homemade) 1 egg or milk or natural yoghurt 3 tablespoon any type of flour 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, thyme, mint or rosemary 2 teaspoons grated parmigiana (optional) Butter or oil for shallow frying 1 lemon zest and juice 3 shallow bowls or lipped plates 1 - Between 2 pieces of clingfilm flatten the chicken breast down to about 1 cm thick. 2 - In a bowl mix the breadcrumbs, herb of choice, parmigiana, salt and pepper and the grated zest of 1 lemon, a tip out on the plate/shallow bowl. 3 - On another put the egg or your egg substitute if you can't find eggs right now. Then finally put the flour last. 4 - Season the chicken with some salt and pepper then I will this order dip into the flour and coat completely, then dip in the egg or milk mixture, followed by the breadcrumb mixture. 5 - In a frying pan put the oil or butter and heat till it melts, put your chicken Schnitzel into the pan and cook on each side for a few minutes on each side till it browns and cooks through. 6 - Enjoy with a good squeeze of lemon juice. This can be done in the oven, put them on a rack over a tray and bake at 200* (190* fan) for 20 minutes turning over half way through. Halloumi works well as a substitute for the parmigiana or you can leave it out completly. This can be done with pork chops, do the exact same process but they will cook for a little less time in the oven. About 15 minutes should be enough. It can also be veggie by using halloumi instead - which I must admit I absolutly love! Different breadcrumbs will give a slightly different texture and look a little different . Homemade will be courser, and shop bought will obviously be a lot finer, but both will be delicious Be inventive! Whatever herbs you have will work. If you want a kick add a few chilli flakes or paprika, love oriental flavours, of you're doing chicken then some 5 spice add a lovely fragrant flavour to it too. Enjoy
