But its not a australian dish its a hungarian one. I jazzed up the breadcrumbs to give it a nice flavor. What is also great about is about it can be a nice light meal for 4 with a side dish of good potato salad and greens such as beans , brocolli or peas.
2 boneless, skin less chicken breast
Dried bread crumbs
1-2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or garlic flakes
dried chilli flakes or 1/2 tsp chilli powder( depends on how hot you like it)
a big pinch of dried herbs
a big pinch of pepper
about a tsp of grated lemon rind or finely chopped rind
1-2 eggs( depending on the size), beaten
oil for deep frying
1. Cut the chicken along the thickest part of the chicken breast lenght wise. So you get nice equal halves.
3.Season your flattened chicken pieces or snitzels with salt and pepper. Then put flour on a flat plate, then eggs in another bowl and finally bread crumbs in a seperate bowl.
4.Season your breadcrumbs with lemon zest,garlic, salt , pepper, chilli flakes or powder and herbs. Mix well.
5.Dust your chicken snitzels with flour, dust off excess, then dip in eggs, then finally into seasoned breadcrumbs.
6. Bring a deep frying pan or suitable pan with oil for deep frying. Once its hot, carefully slide the chickn snitzels in, do one at a time or two at a time. Dont over crowd.
7. Once the bread crumbs are nice and golden brown ,remove onto kitchen towel or paper.
Serve with a good potato salad and greens.
Note : for kids cut the snitzel into strips so its easy to eat with their fingers. Serve with roasted potatoes or chips and a green vegetable
Yes I am still around :) taking things nice and slow , gettin ready for my son's first concert :) , a little nervous too. I remember my first concert and it wasnt exactly all happy day, we were to change and I hate changing infront of people even when I was 4 so created such a fuss about it. Was dressed as a teapot for the song "Am a little tea pot":).
I think nowadays in maldives, concerts have been so commercialised with so much money wasted by the parents and putting on a big show at night , not just one night but 3 whole nights ( imagine the poor kid's crankiness during the morning).I mean concerts are supposed to be for family, and a fun day for the kids. Not something you sell tickets and keep the kids up all night.
Anyway, hope you are all having a great week :).
