Easy Chicken Schnitzel (Oven Baked)

Props to my dear friend Lou for this recipe. I have posted this chicken schnitzel recipe before and while the kids prefer that one, the oven baked chicken schnitzel is still very tasty, but much easier and quicker to prepare.

This recipe could easily form part of starters for Christmas day. Just cut the chicken breasts into small strips and as they are quite crispy, they would make a great finger food.

Easy Chicken Schnitzel (Oven Baked)

Ingredients:

  • 3 chicken breasts (My kids ate everything and Mr I and me didn’t get once piece, so I would use at least 4 breasts next time.)
  • 1 cup of mayonnaise
  • Panko (Japanese) breadcrumbs

Method:
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

I like the chicken to be thin, so slice the chicken breast in half (width ways), then cut it into the size pieces I want for the meal.

Dip the chicken into the mayo and cover completely.
Easy Chicken Schnitzel (Oven Baked) - mayo

Then dip into the breadcrumbs and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Easy Chicken Schnitzel (Oven Baked) - crumbed

Repeat this until all the chicken is crumbed.

Place tray in the oven and cook for 30 – 40 minutes, turning once during cooking.

See easy and tasty!

    I never would have thought to put mayo on! My kids love this, but I usually do the old flour and egg – one less step now – thanks!

    we have this all the time! But I dip mine in melted garlic butter and then the panko and then bake for 20 mins.

    I also do it on one of those trays with the holes on the bottom so I don’t have to turn them.

    Because I am all about the lazy.

    I guess you could just add some garlic salt to the mayo or even the crumbs for that extra flavour.

    And Kelley, I can relate I am all about the lazy too!
