PRO Tips For The Crumbed Chicken Legs without Breadcrumbs
➡️ Schnitzel without breadcrumbs is known as a Parisian schnitzel. Authentic schnitzel is usually made with veal and breadcrumbs, but I like to cook schnitzel also with chicken and pork the French way, namely without breadcrumbs.
➡️ The homemade chicken schnitzel without breadcrumbs is very juicy and tasty. In addition, this easy chicken schnitzel recipe offers a fantastic texture combination between soft meat and crispy coating.
➡️ The chicken inside is very tender, while the coating outside is crunchy. As a result, there is not surprising that chicken schnitzel cooked in the French style becomes more and more popular all over the world!
➡️ At its origin, Parisian schnitzel was fried in butter. Nowadays, most people use vegetable oil for frying. You can choose any of these methods when you’re cooking this easy chicken schnitzel recipe. However, when you fry the homemade chicken schnitzel in oil, I recommend using an oil type with a neutral taste such as sunflower oil or palm oil.
➡️ Homemade chicken schnitzel can be served with many side dishes like fries, mashed potatoes, plain rice pilaf, German kohlrabi stew, braised green beans, sauteed green peas, gratin cauliflower, and many more. Of course, homemade chicken schnitzel can be served plain or just with a dipping sauce such as hot chili pepper sauce, mushroom sauce, parsley sauce, cheese sauce, and so on.
➡️ No matter how you serve homemade chicken schnitzel, make sure it is hot or at least warm when you offer it to your guests. So, keep it in a warm place after you fry the schnitzel, but DON’T cover the dish in which you store it!
➡️ The secret to making schnitzel with a crispy coating is to avoid covering the dish in which you keep it after frying. If you cover it, steam will accumulate in the dish from the heat and will soak the coating.
➡️ Chicken leg schnitzel without breadcrumbs fits very well with white wine, but even cold beer goes well with it.
➡️ Enjoy cooking chicken schnitzel without breadcrumbs from scratch!
