The schnitzel is first stuffed with various ingredients including meat, ham, cheese, herbs, vegetables, and spices, then is cooked by deep-frying, sometimes by baking in the oven. This type of schnitzel is usually cooked with pork, but also with veal and chicken breast or turkey breast, which is boned and cut into fillets previously.

What are the health benefits of eating chicken breast?

➡️ The nutritional content of chicken is very similar to that of beef, but chicken breast is much leaner than beef. The most common chicken breast is about 75% fat-free, as compared to 80-90% fat-free for the leanest beef. The American Heart Association recommends men eat less than 300 calories and women eat less than 200 calories of chicken breast per day. A typical 3-ounce serving of chicken breast contains about 50 calories and provides 20% of the daily suggested amount of protein.
