This is a guest post from one of my “zesty” sons, Jacob. I developed this crispy chicken recipe over the past couple of months and I just had to share it so you can make it too. It’s super easy and is inspired by German schnitzel and Japanese katsu. My tip is to make extra chicken and have it for leftovers or to share with friends.The crispy chicken is served over a salad in this blog post, but with the extra chicken I make delicious sandwiches that are great if you’re in a hurry during the week. Below, I listed some of my favorite sandwich ideas.
The Original (OG):
Tuscan or sourdough bread (or between two pieces of garlic bread – trust me it works)
Olive tapenade (or tiny pearl peppers)
Fresh sliced mozzarella cheese
Serve with potato chips of choice (always)
Classic Chicken Club:
Mayo or aioli (chipotle if you feel spicy)
Optional – cheddar or some other kind of cheese
Ciabatta or sandwich bread (or a wrap)
Chicken and the Egg:
Over easy egg
Fontina or gruyere cheese
Bacon or sausage (if you want a breakfast vibe)
Brioche or sourdough bread (you could put it between two waffles if you’re adventurous)
As you can see, you can really do anything with this crispy chicken. Let me know your favorite combination and suggestions as well!
