Schnitzel with panko breading


4 small boneless pork chops, steaks or chicken breasts

Salt and pepper

Lemon pepper

Garlic salt

½ cup flour

2 large eggs, beaten

¾ cup panko or breadcrumbs

Oil for pan frying

Lemon slices or wedges for garnish


Pound the meat cutlets until thin, about ¼ of an inch thick. Lightly season the meat with lemon pepper if desired.

Cut lemon into slices or wedges for serving.

Mix in a little salt (garlic or otherwise) and lemon pepper into the flour. Separate the eggs, flour and bread crumbs into three shallow bowls.

Heat the oil in a medium to large skillet over medium heat.

Dredge a chop first in the flour, then in the egg, and then in the panko.

Put the chop into the pan and lightly pan fry, 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Try not to overcook.

Serve with the potato salad and lemon slices/wedges.
