    It's great! Just recently tried it. After living here for 20+ years and still missing my Schnitzels it only now occurred to me to use chicken since Pork is not the right cut for it here in the US. - 7/8/11

    This is one of our favorite recipes. I add some dijon mustard with the eggs to give it a little extra something and then serve it with lemon wedges. I just found that if you refrigerate at least an hour but possible over night before cooking its even better! Use Progresso Herb Panko. To Die For!
