Easy Weeknight Meals When You Are Rushed

Veggigal | Jun 3, 201603:20 PM     3

What is your favorite weeknight recipe when you are in a rush to get an easy meal on the table after a long day at work? This is one of my favorites:

Lemon Chicken Schnitzel

2 cups fresh breadcrumbs (I use panko)
1/3 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon rind
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup plain flour
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
4-6 chicken breasts, halved and pounded
Vegetable oil, for shallow-frying
Step 1
Combine breadcrumbs, parmesan, lemon rind, parsley and garlic powder on a plate. Season with salt and pepper. Place flour on a plate. Whisk egg and milk together in a shallow bowl.
Step 2
Coat 1 piece of chicken in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in egg mixture. Coat in breadcrumb mixture. Place on a plate. Repeat with remaining chicken, flour, egg mixture and breadcrumb mixture.
Step 3
Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, in batches, for 4 to 5 minutes each side or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to drain. Serve
