Licious Chicken Breast Fillets
As a bonus, you can make these schnitzels using thinly sliced Chicken Brest Fillets. You don’t have to worry about slicing thick chicken breasts, we’ve already done the work for you! Chicken Fillets are a great option for pan frying because they cook faster, more evenly and don’t require any prep.
Since these fillets are made from breast meat, they are leaner cuts of protein without added fat. However, they won’t dry out but rather become very tender when cooked right. They make the perfect meal that adults and kids alike would enjoy. These Chicken Fillets would just as easily work well when baked too.

Why Potato Chips?
Well, for one thing, you probably have them at home now. Almost every household has potato chips on hand because they are an easy snack when you have the munchies. Also, potato chips are pre-flavoured. Usually when creating a crust with breadcrumbs, you’d add other spices like garlic and onion powder or herbs.
When you use potato chips you can choose which flavour you want and crush them up, there is a very long list for you to choose from as well. Additionally, a potato chip crust really crisps up well which is exactly what is needed for a good Chicken Schnitzel. To crush your potato chips, just place them in a zip-lock bag and use a rolling pin over it.
