  • 300 gms Chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 1/2 cup Fresh Breadcrumbs or dried breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp Syracuse: American Spice Blend
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Milk
  • 1/4 cup Parsley finely chopped
  • 1 Lemon cut into wedges
  1. Take a medium piece of the chicken breast and pound between two cling film sheets or a zip lock bag till it becomes uniformly thin.

  2. In a large bowl, take flour and season with salt. In another bowl, beat together egg, salt and milk and keep aside. 

  3. In the third bowl, take breadcrumbs, American spice blend (or you can replace it with Garlic powder, fresh Parsely, some Parmesan cheese, Salt and Pepper). Mix well and keep aside.

  4. Coat the chicken schnitzel with the flour. Dust off excess and dip in the egg wash.

  5. Then coat with a layer of breadcrumbs and shallow fry until golden brown and crisp on both sides. It should ideally take anywhere between 3 to 5 minutes, depending on the thickness.

  6. Sprinkle with Parsley and serve with lemon wedges and a side of coleslaw or a salad.
