I wanted to make a tasty schnitzel that my family would love. Especially my niece and nephew. So I whipped it up and it was a hit, the kids went back again for 2nds and 3rds so they must be tasty.


  • 1kg chicken breast

  • 125g shredded Parmesan cheese

  • 1 t spoon season all

  • 1 t spoon dried basil

  • 1 t spoon dried rosemary

  • 1 pinch of salt

  • 1 pinch of pepper

  • 1 box corn flake crumbs

  • 2 cups of plain flour

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1.5 cups milk

  • French onion to serve


  • 1.

    Pre heat oven to 160C for approx 10 minuets (or whilst preparing food).

  • 2.

    Lightly grease trays with extra virgin olive oil.

  • 3.

    Combine milk and eggs in a large bowl and mix.

  • 4.

    Place the plain flour in a separate large bowl.

  • 5.

    Combine cornflake crumbs, sh redded Parmesan cheese, season all, dried basil, dried rosemary, salt and pepper in a tray. (; In the bowls and tray up in this order to make the process easier)

  • 6.

    Cut chicken breast in halves or thirds.

  • 7.

    Place glad wrap over top of each piece of chicken and with rolling pin pound the chicken to thin flat pieces.

  • 8.

    When the chicken pieces are all flat you start the crumbing process.

  • 9.

    First place the chicken in the egg and milk mixture and make sure it is completely covered.

  • 10.

    Move the chicken to the plain flour and again make sure the chicken is covered.

  • 11.

    Finally place the chicken in the crumb mixture and press it into the chicken (you may repeat this step for a thicker crust but I don’t believe this is needed) again try cover the whole piece of chicken is covered.

  • 12.

    Place the chicken on the greased trays in 1 layer.

  • 13.

    Place trays in oven for 15 minuets than turn for another 15 minuets.

  • 14.

    Turn oven up to 200C and allow for another 10 minuets each side than check by slicing thickest piece to make sure there is no pink.

  • 15.

    Serve and garnish with french onion.
