Cooking tips about the baked chicken schnitzel recipe 🔎

Schnitzel is one of the juiciest food recipes featuring meat. It’s prepared with various flesh types such as veal, pork, and chicken.

Chicken schnitzel can be prepared with chicken breast, chicken legs, and chicken wings.

Usually, schnitzel is fried in abundant vegetable oil or butter. Some people don’t like eating too much oil or butter, so baked schnitzel is the best choice for them.

This baked chicken schnitzel recipe is very tasty because of the rich flavors offered by the used spices.

Compared to classic schnitzel, this recipe uses very few oils, so one could say that baked schnitzel is healthier…

I recommend you serve baked chicken breast schnitzel while it’s still warm. You can prepare almost any side dish to match chicken schnitzel with breadcrumbs.

Most often, I prefer to eat German schnitzel with mashed potatoes, French fries, simple rice pilaf or risotto.

A fresh vegetable salad is also highly recommended when eating schnitzel.

Chicken schnitzel goes well with white wine, but a cold beer is a good choice as well.

Can I cook baked chicken schnitzel with chicken legs instead of chicken breast? ❓

Yes, you can proceed in the same way, but I recommend to separate the chicken leg quarters into the chicken thigh and chicken drumstick for better baking.

Enjoy it!
