Seeded chicken schnitzel (Serves 4) – Simple Page 235

April 7, 2019

Once you try this, you won’t want to make it any other way.  I have now made up a jar of mixed seeds specifically for this recipe as I make this on a regular basis.  There is no much flavour and crunch and they go so well with a bit of mayo or lemon juice.  Sometimes I serve these with just a green salad, or sometimes potato wedges.


Note – These are not my recipes, and have been taken directly from the authors cook books. 




4 x Skinless chicken breast (chopped into strips),

50g Plain flour,

2 x Eggs (lightly beaten),

80g Panko crumbs,

60g White sesame seeds,

25g Black sesame seeds,

40g Sunflower seeds,

2 x tbsp coriander seeds,

1 x tsp Ground turmeric,

Half tsp Cayenne pepper,

Sunflower oil to fry

1 x Lemon (quartered),

Salt & pepper to taste.




  1. In a clean bowl, add the flour, a little salt and pepper,

  2. In another bowl add the beaten eggs,

  3. In the third bowl add the panko, seeds, turmeric, cayenne and a little salt,

  4. Dip each piece of chicken into the flour, then into the egg and finally into the seed mix, repeat for all the chicken,

  5. In a large frying pan add enough oil to shallow fry the chicken and once hot start adding the chicken,

  6. Cooking time will be between 5-6 minutes, however you are looking for a nice golden colour,

  7. As each piece of chicken is cooked, lay out on some kitchen towel to soak up any excess oil,

  8. When ready to serve, add a little squeeze of lemon.
