Growing up in Sydney means I have the incredible opportunity to try out foods from different culture and if there’s one thing I missed the most about home in Australia is this – Chicken Schnitzel. It was also probably one of the foods that made me gained so much weight from years 2007-2010 because it was so good (and it’s usually deep fried!).
Fun fact: Schnitzel is Austrian origin. 😉
Fortunately with the years passed by and after 20 kilos of weight lost and maintaining it for nearly six years now, I have discovered an awesome way to make Chicken Schnitzel healthier and with way lesser calories.
Schnitzel looks like bread crumbs around chicken and served with lemon. This recipe is super impromptu, I somehow just had panko breadcrumbs sitting on my kitchen counter and chicken breasts in the fridge so here goes.
- 300g of chicken breasts
- Some panko bread crumbs
- 1 whole egg
- Some potato starch or corn flour
What to do:
Skin the chicken breasts and sliced into thin slices (depending on your preference!). Prep oven to 200 degrees celcius. Line oven dish with aluminium foil, and spray some olive oil. Beat egg. Coat the chicken with egg, flour and panko crumbs. Place it on the aluminium lined tray. Bake for about 15-20 mins.
This is funny, though
I had this like a sandwich with smashed avocadoes (great source of fats) and mixed rocket and spinach salad. It was awesome. Ok, go try and leave me a comment below and tell me how you go!
