  • 2 Chicken Breast
  • 1 Carrot
  • 0.25 Red Cabbage
  • 1 Green Apple
  • 1 Stalk of Celery
  • 1 Spring Onion
  • 2 Teaspoons of Dijon Mustard
  • 1.25 Cups of Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 0.5 Cups of Plain Flour
  • 0.25 Cups of Greek Yoghurt
  • 1 Egg (pantry)

Prepare Ingredients:

Wash the fresh produce. Thinly slice the red cabbage. Grate the carrot and apple. Thinly slice celery and spring onion. Pat dry the chicken with paper towel.

Halve Chicken:

Place the chicken on a clean work bench. Hold a sharp knife along the side of the chicken. Using a sawing motion, slice through each chicken breast.

Bread Chicken:

In a shallow bowl, whisk together egg and mustard. Spread bread crumbs on a large plate. Spread flour on a separate large plate and season with salt and pepper. Add chicken to flour, turn to coat, then shake off excess. Add to egg mixture, turn to coat, then allow excess to drip off. Add to panko bread crumbs and turn to coat completely, pressing to adhere. Shake off excess.

Cook Schnitzel:

Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. When oil is shimmering, add chicken and cook until crust is browned and chicken is cooked through. Cook in batches if required. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

Make Slaw:

To make the slaw, in a medium bowl, combine red cabbage, celery, carrot, apple, and spring onion. Stir through yoghurt. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

You Plate It:

Divide chicken and slaw evenly between plates. Enjoy!
