    Can you use Matzo crackers with this recipe or should bread crumbs be used in place of the chips if not available in my area?

    • hi Dennis!!! so great to “hear” from you again. OK so… you can use ANY kind/brand of potato chips with this recipe — and then in general I have a theory about crispy coated fried chicken cutlets… anything goes potato chips, crushed salted pretzels, crushed corn flakes, corn flake crumbs (from a can), of course breadcrumbs for traditional schnitzel, and I have even seen rice krispies! I think your matzo idea is cool and could work too!

    If I wanted to bake the schnitzel as a “healthier” alternative @ 350F how long does it have to bake for ? Is 45 mins enough ?

    My friend’s wife made something similar for shabbos chol hamoed Pesach and baked it and was a “BIG HIT”.

  3. My friend’s wife made a similar recipe for shabbos chol hamoed Pesach and baked it in the oven. It tasted amazing. How long would you bake it for ? and what temp. ?

  4. I would bake it at 375 degrees F but depending on thickness of cutlet it could be done in as few as 15 to 20 minutes — test one at that point.

    The recipes look delicious and I can’t wait to give them a try. Please make your readers aware to be careful especially those with nut allergies that MANY of the kosher l’Pesach potato chips are cooked in walnut oil. Please make sure to check the ingredient labels. Chag Kasher v’Sameach!

    • Hi Daveda! Thanks so much for the heads up! As a kosher consumer I have become a real “label reader” and even more so on Pesach BUT it’s worth mentioning to everyone as you said. Thanks again and Chag K’asher V’Sameyach!
