This is a childhood meal of mine that I modified to fit my cooking style. In other words, there is no frying, mashed potatoes, or corn. Not that I don’t love those things, but I realize there is zero nutritional value in potatoes or corn so I rarely make either (except for a delicious Mexican corn recipe that I’ll be sharing very soon!). I also have a weird thing with frying. I can’t stand the smell–it fills my house and lingers for days and my hair wreaks of it, too. Anytime we have a family dinner at my house and a dish requires frying my mom does it at her house (so nice of her, I know). With that said, below are the 2 recipes that you will find incredibly easy. Shocker!
Schnitzel + Israeli Salad
- Bonesless, skinless chicken breast
- Bread crumbs or panko
- 1 Egg
- Olive Oil
- 3 Tomatoes
- 1 Large Cucumber
- 1 Green Bell Pepper
- 2 Lemons, juiced
- Olive Oil
- Preheat oven to 400º & prep a glass baking dish with olive oil.
- Beat egg & a pink of salt in a bowl, set aside. Pour breadcrumbs onto a plate, set aside.
- Dip each piece of chicken into the egg, then the breadcrumbs, place in the baking dish.
- Place in oven for 10 minutes, remove & flip pieces, continue baking for another 5ish minutes (or until golden brown on both sides).
- Chop up the tomato, cucumber, & bell pepper into small pieces, place into a medium bowl.
- Pour a generous amount of olive oil & mix.
- Squeeze the lemon juice, starting with 1 lemon, & taste. I like mine VERY lemon-y so I add a second lemon.
- Add some salt to taste.
- Once chicken is done, cut up some lemon slices & serve on a tray.
