About this recipe

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).

schnitzel rolls


  • 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-litre oil for deep frying
  • gherkin
  • fresh tomato
  • lettuce
  • mayonnaise
  • chilli sauce (optional)

Notes from Rouba

  • Schnitzels freeze well. Make it ahead of time and freeze.
  • Thaw schnitzels before frying.
  • Add cheddar cheese to your roll if you have it on hand and place it 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.

Step 3.

Toasting the bread/rolls is optional. Fill or top bread/roll with chicken schnitzel, lettuce, tomato, avocado and gherkin. Drizzle with the sauce of your choice.

  1. Was so great. Loved the idea of gherkins (we always have dill pickles in the fridge). We put hommous on ( inspired by your other dinner roll. It was great – even if it seemed a bit odd mixing Eastern European with Middle East. Thanks for the ideas!

This post is meant to be a recipe, but I can’t ignore what’s been happening 👉🏽👉🏽The last seven months have been incredibly challenging, watching thousands of innocent Palestinians being slaughtered in the name of self-defence 💔 It’s an excuse to ethnically cleanse the indigenous people of the land. But what I’ve seen in the last 24 hours has absolutely shattered me 😞

Families were told to move for their safety, only to be burnt alive. I forced myself to watch videos of beheaded babies—images that will never leave my mind. The destruction, the horrific scenes, and the screams are etched in our hearts and minds💔

And yet, our government responds with a mere, “It’s concerning.” Our tax money has contributed to the slaughter of these innocent people; our tax money has contributed to funding this genocide. 

I feel heartbroken and helpless. How can the world just watch? How can anyone say, “I’m staying out of this”?

I’m not ok. Are you?
With so many new followers here, today feels like the right time to reintroduce myself, as it also marks the 76th anniversary of the Nakba—a day of remembrance for the Palestinian people, including my family🇵🇸🌟 

I’m Rouba, 40+7 years young, and I’ve been happily married for 28 years🙏🏽 Those who follow my stories know my husband is quite the character, always keeping things lively 😅 We have two wonderful sons, and my mother-in-law is truly amazing—she often features in my stories ❤️

I’m a big foodie, with a special love for hummus fatteh, ofcourse the  Lebanese 🇱🇧 version 😉 it’s my absolute favourite! I believe Middle Eastern food is the yummiest in the world. 🙌🏼 And yes, I’m proudly pro-Palestine, married to a Palestinian. 

Seventy-five years ago, my husband’s grandfather and his family were evicted from their home. This history is a significant part of our lives 💔

Thanks for joining me here, where we celebrate rich flavours, vibrant stories, and the resilience of a remarkable culture.

Welcome to my journey! FREE PALESTINE 🇵🇸
