Are you curious to know all the secrets to make a delicious and crunchy Chicken Schnitzel? Here is the recipe and some useful tips for chef-proof Israeli Schnitzels, to eat freshly made hot or cold, depending on your taste.
Which meat to choose for the Schnitzel recipe?
What we offer you today is the recipe for Israeli Schnitzels, which are prepared with very fresh chicken breasts, ideal for breading and fried, also perfect for children.
If you can, buy them from your local butcher to make sure they’re really fresh:
- The flesh must be light, pale pink in color.
- It must not have spots or darker areas.
- Chicken breasts must be toned and supple to the touch.
- Their smell must be extremely delicate, almost imperceptible.
- The fat must be of beautiful white color, never yellowish.
Chicken Schnitzel: Frying Tips
- The perfect success of our recipe depends a lot on how we bread and fry the chicken breasts. The procedure is quite simple, as long as you follow a few small tricks:
- Take the eggs out of the refrigerator at least half an hour before using them, so that they are at room temperature.
- For the breading we recommend (if you have time and desire) making breadcrumbs at home, chopping stale bread in the mixer.
- Before breading the chicken breasts, dry them well with absorbent paper to remove excess moisture, allowing the breading to adhere well to the meat.
- During the breading process, make sure that the breadcrumbs perfectly coat all the chicken breasts, even the edges.
- Immediately dip the breaded meat in hot oil to prevent it from becoming too moist.
- Before leaving you to our recipe for chicken Schnitzel, we give you one last tip: for dry and crunchy frying, the meat should be immersed in oil only when the latter is very hot so that it immediately forms that crust on its surface. which will prevent the oil from impregnating it.
- 4 slices of beaten chicken breast

- Beat the eggs in a bowl with the help of a fork.

Like the Viennese schnitzel, the Israeli schnitzel can also be eaten with a few drops of lemon.
It is also often accompanied by mustard or tahini, a thick sauce made from sesame seeds that are readily available at ethnic food stores or many supermarket chains.
