Servings: 2


For the schnitzel

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 3 tbsp bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tbsp parsley chopped
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • oil

For the lemon parsley butter

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter softened
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp parsley finely chopped
  • salt to taste


  • In a small food processor mix the two kinds of bread crumbs, the garlic, the parsley and the lemon zest. Set aside.
  • In small bowl add all the ingredients for the lemon parsley butter and mix well with a fork. Keep in the fridge until serving.
  • Wash and pat the chicken breast dry. With a sharp knife slice the meat into 2-3 Schnitzel (depending on the size of the breast). Salt and pepper both sides.
  • In a flat bowl mix the egg and the milk. Add the flour and the mixed bread crumbs into two other flat dishes.
  • First coat each piece of meat with flour, than with egg and then with the breadcrumbs. Dip it again in the egg and finish with a last layer of breadcrumbs (the last two steps are optional, but they give you a super crispy schnitzel).
  • In a large pan, add frying oil until it's around 1cm deep and heat it up. Fry the schnitzel on both sides until they are golden brown.
  • Serve hot with some fresh lemon and the lemon parsley butter and with whatever side dish you like!
