CHICKEN SCHNITZEL WITH CHAKALAKA & MOZZARELLA TOPPING

INGREDIENTS

  • Schnitzel:
  • 4 breasts, skinned and deboned
  • ½ cup (125 ml) butter milk
  • Coating:
  • ½ cup (125 ml) cake wheat flour
  • ½ (125 ml) breadcrumbs
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) chicken spice
  • 2 eggs
  • Topping:
  • 410 g tin Lucky Star Mild & Spicy Chakalaka
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) chives, chopped

METHOD

  1. To make this recipe put a sliced piece of chicken on a cutting board and cover it with a piece of cling film. You can use a rolling pin to thin the schnitzel but a meat hammer is also a great option.
  2. Then take a large bowl to beat eggs together with the buttermilk and put the coating ingredients in a separate bowl.
  3. Drag your schnitzel through the beaten egg mixture on both sides. Then put the schnitzel in the coating and move them back and forth so all of the schnitzels are covered with crumbs.
  4. Now take a skillet and preheat to medium-hot. Then add a large knob of butter and cover the pan with butter.
  5. When all the bubbles are gone add the schnitzel. Bake for about 3 - 4 minutes and in meanwhile preheat your oven to 180 ºC.
  6. Turn the schnitzel and bake the other as well for about 3 - 4 minutes. Then put them on a baking tray, add the Chakalaka on top and then the mozzarella cheese and bake the schnitzels for about 10 to 12 minutes until the cheese has a golden colour.
  7. Sprinkle the chopped chives
  8. Serve with spicy rice or potatoes
