Breaded German Chicken Schnitzel Recipe

1) if you are using whole chicken legs, remove excess skin and back if necessary, then cut the leg on the joint into thigh and drumstick (view how to cut chicken leg into pieces)
2) rub the chicken with salt and pepper to enter inside the meat evenly, then cover the bowl with foil and place it in the fridge for about 1 hour (optional)
3) coat each chicken piece with flour, beaten egg, and breadcrumbs (exactly in this order) so that it finally has a smooth crust
4) pour oil into a frying pan, place it over medium heat and wait until the oil is hot
5) lay chicken pieces in the pan
6) fry the meat until the crust on the bottom side turns golden (2-4 minutes)
7) flip chicken schnitzels and wait until they turn completely golden (2-3 minutes), you need to fry larger drumsticks 1-2 minutes more with the joint placed vertically into the oil
8) take chicken leg schnitzel with breadcrumbs out from the pan and place it on absorbent paper to remove excess oil

Tips For The German Chicken Schnitzel Recipe

➡️ Schnitzel is one of the most popular chicken recipes in many European countries. Chicken schnitzel can be prepared with breadcrumbs (Wiener schnitzel) or without breadcrumbs (Parisian schnitzel – view how to make chicken leg schnitzel without breadcrumbs).

➡️ This German chicken schnitzel recipe is extremely tasty, the meat is tender, while the outside crust is crispy. To get the best results, I recommend avoiding placing the schnitzel into a covered dish. If you do so, the schnitzel won’t be crunchy anymore because the crumb is softened by steam.

➡️ This chicken leg schnitzel with breadcrumbs can be served with various side dishes such as mashed potatoes, French fries, buttered potatoes, plain rice pilaf, and many more. Fresh vegetable salads and dipping sauces are also very suitable to be combined with chicken schnitzel.

➡️ The best drink to serve along with German chicken schnitzel is white wine, but it can be accompanied by a cold beer as well. Soft drinks and plain water are good choices as well.
