Parmesan Crusted Chicken Schnitzels

Parmesan Crusted Chicken Schnitzels

These Parmesan Crusted Chicken Schnitzels are a delectable low-calorie chicken dish packed with flavor but not calories. The flavor is sooo good.


I used panko breadcrumbs and shredded Parmesan and I serve it with lots of steamed greens and a grilled tomato.

It makes for a delicious dinner.

If you are NOT worried about the extra calories, brush the chicken fillets with a little oil before baking, or pan-fry them in a little oil or butter.
