A nice quick and easy tasty meal in one of my old favourites: chicken schnitzel in mushroom sauce.

You can go as far as making your own schnitzel, but with plenty of choices out there, you can buy premade schnitzel that tastes as good as anything you can make at home.


Chicken Schnitzels
– in my case, Camberwell Market schnitzels. The key here is free range, hormone free chicken. Markets usually have the freshest pre-made snitzels on offer, although you can buy from a supermarket.
– Mushrooms
– Light Cream
– Salt and Pepper (optional.)
– Extra virgin olive oil

To cook

– Add oil to pan and bring up to heat without it being too hot
– fry both sides of the schnitzel, being sure to seal both sides before more regular flipping. Being flat chicken, these don’t take long to cook, maybe 10mins max
– As the schnitzel is getting close, add the mushrooms to the pan and fry until they change colour
– and the cream (and salt and pepper) and toss the schnitzel and mushrooms in the sauce. Simmer down until the sauce is thick enough for your liking.

You can serve these with salad, potatoes, chips, vegetables…what ever you like. The sauce itself goes nicely over sides.
