Chicken Schnitzel
  1. Place chicken between plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet or rolling pin until 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Place eggs in one container, flour in a second, and combine both breadcrumbs and place in a third container.
  3. Season chicken with salt, dredge in the flour, then dip into the egg, and fully coat in the breadcrumb mixture.
  4. Repeat these steps with each piece of chicken breast.
  5. Place enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of a wide pan and heat to 350F.
  6. Fry chicken, working in batches so the pan isn't overcrowded, until golden brown (about 3 minutes per side).
