    I have made this many times, we are jewish and call this dish chicken shnitzel. I do agree with erasure though, it doesn't need all that salt. I have never added salt to the egg or the flour, just a little to the breadcrumbs along with other spices, and lately I've been baking it instead of frying for health reasons, and it is almost as tasty...almost, not quite.

      Chicken schnitzel, pork schnitzel, veal schnitzel. It just means a thin piece of meat cooked like this. I think it's a German dish.

    I'm glad I read your comments. I agree there looks like a lot of salt so I will take your advice and cut back. Bekagram

    I find that some of the recipes here are too salty for my tastes too. I just use less. I bet a touch a parmesan cheese, instead of the salt, would be good as well as a few herbs.

    Why so much salt? I've made this recipe without any salt, and it's equally delicious. Try adding some herbs to the breadcrumbs, too!

    This breading for chicken is delicious, although I needed less breadcrumbs and more flour. It is crispy and a treat to eat.
