Seeded Chicken Schnitzel by Ottolenghi

Different type of breadcrumbs mix that would make a schnitzel purist puke. You can skip or add a spice/seed or two, nobody will notice. Flatten your chicken breasts before cutting them in strips; be gentle but firm.

Needles to say: salt your chicken upfront if possible. Afterwards flatten: you can form fingers or go with larger schnitzels.

Not really published anywhere, so I am adding the ingredients. You can work the rest out yourself. Shallow fry and store the breadcrumbs mix in the freezer.
