Watch the video here!

What a fun day this was! I had a blast cooking with Hayley from Kids Favourite Dinners. Hayley is a mum of 3 that created this amazing website for other parents out there that are struggling with the  constant ups and downs of fussy kids. You can find a many great recipes on the website as well as a meal planner to help you get organized for the week, and best of all - it's FREE!

We made one of my childhood favourite recipes in her wonderful kitchen, follow the recipe below & see if your family loves it as much as I do!


4 Large Chicken Breasts
250g Fine Breadcrumbs (I use Krummies)
250g Panko Breadcrumbs
250g Grated Parmesan Cheese
1 Small bunch of flat leaf Parsley, chopped
1 cup plain flour
3 Eggs
1 tsp Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper to Taste
Olive Oil & Canola Oil for Frying


Slice the Chicken Breasts from the side to form slices approx 1cm thick.
Whisk the eggs in a shallow dish & set aside.
Add the flour to another shallow dish  & set aside.
In a large baking dish or foil tray combine the breadcrumbs, cheese, parsley, garlic powder, salt & pepper & stir together. Set aside.
One by one dip the slices of chicken into the flour, then into the egg, then  straight into the breadcrumbs & press crumbs onto the chicken. Place onto a plate to prepare for frying. Repeat until all chicken pieces are coated.
In a frying pan over a medium heat add 1/2 Canola oil & 1/2 Olive oil approx 2cm deep. The oil is hot enough when a crumb is dropped in & floats to the top sizzling. Fry your schnitzels until golden brown, approx 2 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towel & serve with Mashed potatoes & a salad.

Enjoy! xxx
