Neven's Recipes - Crispy Chicken Schnitzel

Something for the Kids - Crispy Chicken Schnitzel Baps

This recipe makes a little chicken go a long way and is the ultimate chicken burger for children.

It doesn’t take long to prepare, especially if you have some breadcrumbs tucked away in the freezer. Serves 4

25g (1oz) seasoned flour, 1 large egg

1 tbsp milk, pinch of salt

50g (2oz) fresh white breadcrumbs

2 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan

2 large skinless chicken fillets

2 tbsp olive oil

knob of butter

4 white bread rolls, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


2 carrots, finely grated

¼ head of white cabbage, tough core removed and shredded

4 tbsp mayonnaise.

Put the seasoned flour on a flat plate. Beat the egg, milk and a pinch of salt in a shallow dish. Put the breadcrumbs and Parmesan in a separate shallow dish, then season with salt and pepper.

Cut each chicken fillet in half so that it almost opens out like a butterfly, then cut all the way

through – you’re looking to get 2 even-sized, thin pieces of chicken from each breast. Dust in the seasoned flour, shaking off any excess, then dip in the beaten egg and then coat in the

Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the oil and then add the butter. Once the butter stops sizzling, add in the coated chicken pieces and sauté for 2–3 minutes on each side, until cooked through and golden brown.

Meanwhile, to make the coleslaw, put the carrots and cabbage in a bowl and fold in the mayonnaise, then season to taste. Split the bread rolls in half and lightly toast them.

To serve, spread the bottom halves of the bread rolls with the coleslaw and put a crispy chicken schnitzel on top. Cover with the toasted bread roll tops.

The Take Off and Landing of Everything...from Elbow 

is the sixth studio album by British alternative rock band Elbow released in the UK through Fiction Records on 10 March 2014. Originally recorded with the working title of All at Once and then renamed Carry Her, Carry Me,the band changed their mind shortly before the album's release and settled on naming the album after one of its tracks, with singer Guy Garvey explaining, "It's to do with the fact that there have been [so many] life events. There are five members of the band—people have split up, got together, had children. It never stops, this stuff. Especially round the [age of] 40 mark... and yet I wanted to remain celebratory about that. Everybody's feeling relief, with remorse, next to joy, next to loss."

Especially one's like this from Mark Bourke who says... 

'Marty on Lyric is my inoculation from anything the day can throw at me, he’s up there with Byrne, Wogan & Andrews as Ireland’s greatest broadcaster.'..........Thank you Mark......Tenner in the post!!

Other messages......

His morning show on Lyric is quite simply the best radio in Ireland. He has such a perfect delivery. An encyclopaedia of clever dadjokes and puns but with a light touch, never hanging on for the applause. Reminds me of a jolly, self-deprecating Colonel Mustard.   Jonathan McCrea

...Thanks very much for all the good cheer every morning Marty and never going on about all the bad news out there!! You are a tonic to be sure!! ........Patricia in Offaly

....Good morning Marty, I am a nurse working on night duty and listen to lyric through the night. Always glad to hear your dulcet tones at 7am as I know I will be off duty soon. .... Keep up the good work and music and the 'corny' jokes....Moira in Dublin 6
