WHICH TYPE OF CHICKEN PIECES TO USE
* For a Chicken Schnitzel, I recommend using chicken breast fillets. Small chicken breast fillets work best as you can flatten them easily, but you can also halve larger chicken breast fillets into two pieces.
* You can also use chicken tenderloins in the above recipe, which happen to be better portion-wise for children.
The above recipe is a good blue-print for a classic Chicken Schnitzel. To vary the recipe a little, I recommend the following:
* add the zest of 1 lemon and 1 tablespoon of finely chopped parsley to the breadcrumbs
* add 2-3 tablespoons of finely grated parmesan to the breadcrumbs
