My Shnitzel Recipe:
An Israeli Staple
Shnitzel or Schnitzel is what I learned to expect for lunch or dinner
growing up as a kid in Israel. Schnitzel is made of chicken breast, also
known as tenders, rolled in bread crumbs and fried. It is actually a
European dish – from Austria I think – but it was warmly adopted in Israel.
It really does tastes great - and pretty easy to prepare!
Home-made Israeli schnitzel
It goes well with rice, Israeli salad, in a pita with some hummus or just by itself with some lemon juice squeezed on top. Kids love it with ketchup.
This would provide enough for 4 people and then some…
- 2 pounds (about 1 kg) chicken breast / chicken tenders
- 1 pack of bread crumbs
- 1 egg
- 1 cup olive oil or vegetable oil
- 1 cup soy sauce (if you are missing this item – it will still come out ok)
How to Make the Schnitzel:
- Marinate the chicken breast in a bowl with the soy sauce for 2 hours in the fridge prior to the cooking
- Break the egg and add to the chicken strips
- Pour the bread crumbs on a plate
- Roll each chicken breast piece in the bread crumbs until covered from all sides
- Fry the chicken pieces for about 5 minutes on each side or until they become golden brown in color – see my picture
- Serve hot with ½ lemon or whatever sauce you like
There you go - if you ever wanted to find out how to cook chicken schnitzel easily - the above recipe is one way to do so!
