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!
