Pecan chicken schnitzel

Pecan chicken schnitzel

Kids love ‘crumbed’ meats, but you can use lots of things other than bread for the crumbs.  If you are avoiding grains, and want to get more healthy fats into your kids, you can use seeds or nuts instead of breadcrumbs.


750g organic chicken breast

2 tablespoons olive oil

120g raw pecans

1/4 teaspoon celtic sea salt


Preheat the oven to 220C.

Rinse and pat dry the chicken breasts with paper towel.

Using a sharp knife, slice down the middle to make them half as thick.

Grind the pecans in a food processor, to the desired fineness.

Mix the pecans and the salt together in a bowl.

Coat the chicken with olive oil.

Dip the chicken in the pecan blend and coat completely.

Place chicken breasts on greaseproof paper on oven tray.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.
