Are you wondering what the heck schnitzel is? Besides being a super weird sounding word originating in Austria, it’s a way of cooking thinly sliced meat (usually chicken, veal, turkey & pork) which has been breaded and than fried. My version is more of the Israeli version as I use paprika and bread crumbs. In Israel you can find schnitzel inside a pita with hummus, salad and french fries. When I went to Israel in college, we definitely had some of the best schnitzel and falafel from the street. I tend to stay away from fried foods but every once in a while it’s okay to splurge and add to your low FODMAP diet recipes.
I also thought this recipe was perfect to make during Hanukkah as traditionally you partake in eating fried foods to symbolize the oil lasting for the Israelites 8 nights instead of 1.

- In a medium size bowl soak chicken in milk for 30-60 minutes, depending on how much time you have.
- While the chicken is soaking, whisk the eggs in a shallow plate. Set aside. Using another shallow plate, add the almond flour, paprika, sesame seeds, salt & pepper.
- Dip the chicken on both sides into the egg mixture followed by dipping into the almond flour mixture and set on a separate plate. Continue until all the chicken pieces are covered.
- Using a large shallow pan starting on medium heat, add enough oil for it to be at least 1/2 inches deep. Add the chicken breasts and cook for approximately 4 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
