When you tell them what's for dinner, your family will probably ask you, "What's a schnitzel chicken?" Instead of answering, just have them taste! This easy chicken recipe is perfect for bringing a little German flavor to the table, in a whole new way!
What You'll Need
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1 to 1-1/4 pounds)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup sliced mushrooms
- 1 (10.5-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
What to Do
- Between 2 pieces of wax paper, gently pound the chicken to 1/4-inch thickness with a mallet or rolling pin; set aside.
- In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter; sauté mushrooms 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Add soup, milk, wine, onion powder, and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover to keep warm.
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil until hot.
- Whisk eggs in a shallow dish and place bread crumbs in another shallow dish. Coat chicken in egg, then in bread crumbs.
- Saute chicken in batches 4 to 5 minutes per side or until golden brown and no pink remains in center. Place on serving dish and serve immediately topped with mushroom sauce.
