Best Ever Chicken Shnitzel with Panko

For an added depth of flavor try adding ground dried mushroom powder to the flour.


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon paprika in oil (can use regular paprika)
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 8 (6 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breasts, pounded or cut thin
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons dried mushroom powder (optional)
  • oil for frying


Combine panko, paprika, and half of salt and pepper in a bowl, set aside.

Prepare another bowl with beaten eggs and a third bowl with the flour and the rest of the salt and pepper and optional mushroom powder.

Heat a large frying pan over high heat and add a thick layer of oil (the more oil you use the crispier the chicken will be and the less oil will actually be absorbed, so don’t skimp and save the extra oil for another use).

Once oil is hot, take each piece of chicken and dredge in flour, then egg then panko.  Then place in hot oil, do not overcrowd the pan.  Turn when browned and place on a plate lined with paper towels.  Repeat until all chicken is finished.

This chicken is great hot, cold, room temperature and any time.  Enjoy.
