THERMOMIX: Seeded schnitzel


I haven’t made this chicken since I first tried it for the TEST KITCHEN back in February… and I am not sure why.  I whipped it up with a salad in less than 20 mins tonight… it is so tasty and so easy it is going on my dinner rotation.  (Can be made using a Thermomix or a regular Food Processor)



This week in the Test Kitchen, I was tempted by a new Donna Hay recipe.  It didn’t look as great as hers (obviously), but I loved the flavours, and it was surprisingly easy to make as there was a healthy crunchy crumb, without the usual flour/egg messy fingers crumbing process.




4 x 200g chicken breasts, halved lengthways

2T olive oil

lemon wedges to serve

Spiced Seeded Crumb

40g almonds

2T sesame seeds

1 tsp chia seeds

35g sunflower seeds

2 tsp ground cumin

20g finely grated parmesan, plus extra to serve

1 tsp sea salt flakes

1T flat leaf parsley



Place all  crumb ingredients (except parsley) into a food processor and pulse to a coarse crumb. Add parsley and stir to combine.

Preheat oven to 200C.  Divide the chicken between 2 baking trays lined with baking paper and sprinkle with crumb mixture. Drizzle with olive oil and roast for 10-15 mins or until golden and cooked through.

Serve with extra parmesan and lemon wedges.
