Chicken Schnitzel Recipe


  • 2 pounds chicken fillets, pounded thin
  • 1 cup flour and more if needed
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1.5 cups dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • Salt and pepper to season the fillets
  • Plenty of oil for frying; safflower or sunflower oil are good
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (optional)
  • Juice of 1 lemon (optional)


  1. Season the fillets with salt and pepper. If marinating in lemon juice, do so now, and set aside.
  2. Heat oil for deep frying in a large skillet. It will be hot enough when it shimmers and a drop of water skips on the surface.
  3. Put the flour in a medium bowl. Mix the eggs and mustard until smooth. Mix the bread crumbs, optional paprika and sesame seeds and put in a large bowl or platter.
  4. Fry in batches, breading only as many fillets as will fit into the skillet each time.
  5. Dip each fillet in flour, making sure that there are no bare spots. It helps to use tongs or a fork for this.
  6. Dip into the egg/mustard mix. Immediately, dip into bread crumbs. Again, make sure that the entire surface is covered.
  7. Fry the schnitzels until the crust is golden, 3-4 minutes. Remove to a platter lined with crumpled newspaper or paper towels.
  8. Serve hot, with ketchup.
