Chicken schnitzel is a classic and delicious dish. It’s a crowd-pleaser and your family and friends will love it.

We use 3 small pieces of boneless and skinless chicken breast. If you use one large breast, you might need to cut it in to 3 pieces lengthwise. For this low carb version, we made the coating using pork rind. You can buy the regular unflavored pork rind and crush it into crumbs using a sealable bag, or you can also use the premade pork rind breadcrumbs (pork dust).

This chicken schnitzel dish is exquisite. It may seem a bit complicated at first but it is actually quite easy. We like to serve this with fresh salad. It makes a perfect and healthy meal.
