Crusty Kerala Chicken Schnitzel

Serves 4

Ingredients

Crusty Kerala Chicken Schnitzel - Zest Byron Bay4 free-range chicken breasts
175g Zest Kerala Blend Recipe Base
1 cup Japanese (panko) breadcrumbs
4 tbs sunflower/peanut Oil
4 crusty bread rolls

Coleslaw
1 cup finely shredded red cabbage
½ cup finely shredded white cabbage
½ cup finely shredded carrot
¼ cup flat-leafed parsley
2-3 tbs whole egg mayonnaise
½ lemon juiced
Salt and Pepper

Method

To “butterfly” chicken: place breast on cutting board. With one hand lying flat on top of it and using a sharp knife in the other, slice to cut from the long side almost all of the way through, leaving a ‘hinge’. Open like a book and press down flat. Hammer with a meat mallet if you want a thinner schnitzel. Repeat with other 3 breasts.

In a bowl, marinate the chicken in Kerala Blend for at least 2 hours, covered, in the fridge.

Once marinated, put breadcrumbs into a large bowl. Drain excess marinade from each breast and then push well into breadcrumbs, turning to coat evenly.

Put on a plate in the fridge for 30 minutes for the crumb to set.

In a large frying pan, heat the oil to about 170°C and fry the schnitzels for about 5-8 minutes on each side or until golden and the chicken is cooked through. Drain on kitchen paper.

For Coleslaw: mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl and season to your liking.

Warm rolls if you like, cut open and fill with crispy schnitzel and crunchy coleslaw.
