This version of the classic schnitzel is healthier and has a great flavour thanks to the chives and parmesan. Definitely a family favourite!

500 g, (2 x 250g fillets)

plain flour

1 tbs, (take 1/4 cup in plate to dip and shake off excess)


1 medium, lightly beaten

skim milk

cup(s), (80ml)

panko breadcrumbs

60 g

fresh chives

2 tbs, chopped

cherry tomato

500 g, truss variety (2 x 250g)

1 medium, cut into wedges, to serve

oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)


  1. Preheat oven to 200°c. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Cut each chicken breast horizontally to make 2 thin fillets. Place flour on a plate and whisked egg and 1 tbs milk in a bowl.
  2. Combine the breadcrumbs, chives and parmesan on a plate. Dip each fillet into the flour, shake off excess. Dip into the egg mixture and then breadcrumbs to coat. Place on a large plate.
  3. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook the chicken for 1-2 minutes until golden. Transfer to the prepared tray. Place the tomato on another prepared tray, spray lightly with oil. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until tomatoes are soft and chicken has cooked through.
  4. Meanwhile, cook parsnip and potato in a saucepan of boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain. Mash with remaining milk until smooth. Serve schnitzels with mash, roasted tomatoes, beans and lemon wedges.
