Cook on 3-4 minutes each side, until the meat is cooked through.

A common mistake when cooking Chicken Schnitzel is to leave it on the pan for too long at a low heat - this is where it can get too tough. If you want a really nicely cooked schnitzel, don't overcook it, just cook enough to make sure the meat isn't pink (undercooked chicken isn't good for you) and then remove it from the pan. You really need to stay with it because the secret to perfectly cooked schnitzel is high heat and quick timing. If you notice it going dry, add a little more olive oil to the pan.

It is the olive oil which gives the schnitzel that beautiful golden colour. Don't leave it on too long or you risk burning the crumbs or overcooking your chicken and ruining the meal.

Serve with a salad or in the old-fashioned way with mashed potatoes.
