This is my new go-to chicken schnitzel burger recipe. A ridiculously easy recipe for the no-fuss lunch/dinner that you’ve always dreamed of. And what’s better than a crunchy schnitzel roll for tomorrow’s brunch? (maybe a hummus dinner roll)

  • bread roll of your choice
  • 4 chicken breasts halved lengthwise to form 8 pieces
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups (or more) of breadcrumb
  • salt and pepper to season
  • 1-liter oil for deep frying
  • gherkin
  • mayonnaise
  • chilli sauce (optional)

Notes from Rouba

  • Schnitzels freeze well. Make ahead of time and freeze.
  • Thaw schnitzels before frying.
  • Add cheddar cheese to your roll if you have it on hand and place in a press down toaster or in the oven for a few minutes.


Step 1.
Slice each chicken breast fillet in half length-ways to form 8 pieces. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

Beat the eggs in a shallow baking dish. Place the breadcrumbs in another shallow baking dish, adding more if necessary.

Working with 1 piece of chicken at a time, dip into the egg mixture while turning to coat evenly, and carefully coat with breadcrumb.

Step 2. 
Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the chicken schnitzels and cook for 6-8 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

Transfer to a wire rack or onto a plate lined with a paper towel.
