Spicy Chicken Schnitzel
- Pound the chicken breasts until they are 1/2" to 1/4" thick. Trevor does this by dropping a heavy wooden cutting board on the chicken breasts when they're sandwiched between layers of plastic wrap, but you could also use a mallet to flatten them.
- Next, pour oil into a large frying pan until it's about 1/2" deep. Heat the oil until it registers 350 F on a thermometer. While the oil is heating, prepare the chicken. Stir the salt & pepper into the flour (and other spices if you want) and put it on a plate. First, coat the chicken in flour. Next dip it in the lightly beaten eggs, then coat it in the breadcrumbs.
- When the oil is 350 F, place a few pieces of chicken into the oil (so that the pieces aren't touching). Cook for for about 3 minutes before flipping and cooking for another 3 minutes. The chicken should be golden and crispy. Remove the chicken from the pan and allow it to drain on some paper towel.
- It's best to use fresh white buns (like for hero sandwiches). Spread both sides of the bun with mayo. Add a piece of chicken and hot sauce to taste (we like to use Frank's Red Hot). Top with some green leaf lettuce and sliced tomato. Enjoy!
