Chicken Schnitzels

One of my absolute favorite food is tasty, easy and pan-fried Chicken Schnitzels. I can eat this all day, and every single day without ever getting tired of, and I am not even exaggerating.

Chicken Schnitzels
Chicken Schnitzels

I have a love-hate relationship with fried food, but I suspect many of us have the same issue.

Well, I do try not to make it too often, but when I do it is a feast.

Pork or chicken cutlet or schnitzels are such a marvelous mate to serve with salad, over pasta, with potatoes or rice, or perhaps in a sandwich or a wrap.

As you can see there are literally tones of possibilities. To be honest, my family is obsessed with it as much as I am.

Every time when my kids have friends over pork or chicken schnitzels need to be made as well as pasta and sauce. PERIOD!

Chicken Schnitzels

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Easy and tasty recipe for my amazing Chicken Schnitzels

Ingredients

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts halves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper on each cutlet
  • 1/2-3/4 cup all-purpose flour (I used gluten-free)
  • 3 large eggs, well mixed
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs (any type works fine)
  • 4-5 tablespoons oil
  • Freshly chopped parsley
  • Lemon wedges

Instructions

  1. Place the chicken breasts on the cutting board and remove if there is any fat. Cut a large chicken breast half in half diagonally lengthwise. See pic below.
  2. Place each cutlet in a large plastic bag or use plastic wrap (film), one at a time, and pound them so they are approximately 1/2 inch in thickness.
  3. Season each chicken cutlet with a pinch of salt and ground black pepper.
    Prepare 3 bowls, one with flour, second with well-mixed eggs and the last with bread crumbs. I add a pinch of salt and pepper to eggs, some people add in the flour. NOTE* You do not need much salt as breadcrumbs are usually seasoned. If they are not, season accordingly. Add a good pinch of salt, pepper and maybe herbs if the crumbs are not seasoned.
  4. Place each piece of chicken in the flour, coating both sides, and shaking off any excess. Next, dunk it into the whisked egg, let any excess liquid drain off. Then coat it with breadcrumbs. Set aside until ready. At this point, you could place them in the airtight container and keep in the fridge for a couple of days. I like adding a wax paper or kitchen paper towel in between each uncooked chicken cutlet.
  5. Place a large skillet over medium heat and add the oil. Once the oil is hot but not smoking, carefully place one piece of Chicken Schnitzel into the pan and let it cook for 2 minutes and then flip it over to finish cooking. I like flipping it twice so about 8 minutes per schnitzel and I cook 2 to 3 at the time depending on the size of the skillet. If the skillet or a frying pan is small, like 8 inches I cook only one at the time.
  6. Each piece should be golden brown on both sides.
  7. Remove the chicken to a kitchen paper towel-lined plate and repeat the process with the remaining chicken.
  8. Once all the chicken is cooked, give it all a generous squeeze of lemon, a sprinkle of freshly chopped parsley, and season with more salt if needed.

Saving the Day with Danone® Products at Publix!

This post is sponsored by Danone North America. The opinions and text are all mine.

A Waffle Breakfast Board would not be complete without the signature sides of luscious fruits, yogurt, homemade granola, and jam.

Waffle Breakfast Board

My family loves a quick and easy meal, especially during the weekend, so we have been making some type of board every Saturday or Sunday.

This week we decided to create this graceful and gorgeous spread with the help of Danone. I was so enthralled by the way it turned out.

It is bright, tasty and popping with colors. There is truly something for everyone.

Danone has been a part of my family for a long time, and I continue to buy their products for myself all the time.

Their products are an amazing snack and are definitely a quick on-the-go breakfast, school, or work lunch essential.

Waffle Breakfast Board

With that being said, I’ve created many phenomenal desserts using Activia® and Two Good® yogurts, such as parfaits, making incredible salad dressing, using it in my baked goodies, and smoothies.

It is such a versatile product packed with delicious ingredients. I also picked up Stok® Cold Brew and So Delicious® Coconutmilk Creamer.

In addition to my Waffle Breakfast Board in the morning, ifyou genuinely love a good iced coffee and silky creamer, Publix has your back.

Stok Cold Brew Coffee

Well, I need my coffee hot every single morning, but my college son adores his coffee iced, no exceptions, with a generous amount of creamer.

Most of the time when he is home, I get him excellent Stok Black Unsweetened cold brew coffee.

As well as a complementary sweetener such as the rich andcreamy coconutmilk creamer from So Delicious.

They are both qualifying products for the Save the Day Stack the Savings promotion at Publix.

Creamer from So Delicious

Nevertheless, this iced coffee and creamer naturally makean outstanding addition to our Waffle Breakfast Board!

Easy and Quick Salad Dressing

When it comes to lunch or dinner, one of my favorite multi-purpose salad dressings is this incredibly creamy dressing using Two Good plain low-fat yogurt.

I sincerely love it with romaine lettuce, radishes, and cherry tomatoes.

Salad with Yogurt Lemon Dressing

However, if you have some tomatoes and cucumbers, this dressing instantly makes one delicious salad. Perhaps use it to make a pasta salad.

Also, serve it on the platter with vegetables like peppers, carrots, cucumber, etc., you would be surprised how tasty it is.

Yogurt Lemon Dressing

  • 1/2 cup Two Good plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Pineapple and Coconut Sheet Cake

Pineapple and Coconut Sheet Cake

Pineapple and Coconut Sheet Cake

If your family is anything like mine, we have to have something sweet after dinner.

I am not a big cake baker. To be honest, I am not even close to being one, but every once in awhile I do make a tasty cake.

Well, I know it does not take a rocket scientist to make a cake, I get that. However, for me was like having two left hands.

It certainly is not the recipe because I would always pick the best-reviewed cake recipe to bake and mine would always come out more like a loaf of bread.

I could make anything with dough, but cake was this whole another dimension to me.

Anyhow, with a bit of practice and numerous hours watching youtube, I have created my first cake that not only looked like a cake, but it tasted delicious. I was so excited!

Just to mention that cake excitement happen only a couple of years ago so it’s not like I was 15 and made my first cake. Haha!

Well, then I have had another problem. Yes! I could not decorate the cake for shit. I still cannot.

Pineapple and Coconut Sheet Cake

Thankfully, we have these sheet cakes that do not require fancy-schmancy decorating.

I think it looks so much better like this. Looks more homemade, don’t you think?!

This pineapple cake with the addition of coconut is just incredible. I really liked it.

Every recipe that I found to test had a crazy amount of sugar, and some just didn’t make any sense, so I tested and retested until I created a recipe that is mine.

The whole sheet pan was gone over one lazy weekend afternoon when we celebrated my husband’s birthday.

Pineapple and Coconut Sheet Cake

I decided to make this cake simply because he loves pineapple and coconut.

However, he did say if I only had a tub of chocolate with me. Ah! You can’t please them all the time.

Needless to say, all of us loved it so I wanted to finally share with you guys.

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract

TOPPING

  • 1/2 cup toasted coconut flakes

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Coat all over a 10 x 15-inch baking sheet with butter, or you could use 9 x 13-inch metal baking sheet pan and line either with a sheet of parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, with a hand mixer, beat sugar, eggs, oils, and vanilla until well combined and fluffy.
  4. Add pineapple with juice, coconut shreds, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; mix until well combined.
  5. Transfer the batter into well-greased baking dish and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until the top is golden brown and a toothpick can be inserted in the centre and removed without any batter sticking. Remove the cake once fully baked and let cool.

Notes

To toast the shredded coconut:

Add 1 cup of coconut flakes into a skillet and toast for about 2 to 3 minutes at medium heat. Be sure to watch it carefully, so it doesn't burn so keep stirring.

I used the baking pan for brownies (12.25 x 8.75 x 1.13) just because I wanted more hight to have when I take the pictures, but sheet pan is just perfect for this recipe.

Notes

Homemade Sugar Cookies (Makes 2 smaller pizzas)

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar (Usually you would use 1 cup of sugar, but we are using it for as a crust so I used a bit less)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon milk


DIRECTIONS

  1. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  1. Place butter and sugar in a large bowl of an electric stand mixer and beat until light in colour.
  2. Add egg and milk and beat to combine. Put mixer on low speed, gradually add flour, and beat until mixture pulls away from the side of the bowl.
  3. Divide the dough in half, wrap in waxed paper, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  4. Remove 1 wrapped pack of dough from refrigerator at a time.
  5. Use two parchment papers, plastic wrap or wax paper to roll out dough much easier. This way you do not have to use additional flour or powder sugar to roll out and also it does not stick.
