To make the crispy schnitzel, you’ll need eggs, garlic cloves, chicken breast, rosemary, parsley, bread, flour and water.

In the video Daen made her own breadcrumbs by blending sliced bread, parsley and rosemary together.

She then whisked together four eggs with crushed garlic in a deep, wide dish, and tenderised the chicken using the smooth side of a mallet.

The poultry should be tenderised in between two pieces of glad wrap to minimise mess and stop any meat sticking to the mallet. 

Next, she placed flour into a second wide dish and seasoned with salt.

The chicken was then coated in the flour, egg wash and then into the thick breadcrumbs, ensuring both sides were covered in each mixture.

Daen then added a ‘generous amount’ of olive oil to a pan and placed the schnitzel piece in.

The crumbed chicken should be cooked on a medium-high heat until crispy and golden brown.
