Grilled Chicken Schnitzel with Fennel Slaw

Ingredients

3 slices (100 g) white bread
50 g butter
2 teaspoons thyme leaves
sea salt and cracked black pepper
2 x 200 g chicken breast fillets, trimmed and sliced lengthways lemon wedges, to serve

Fennel slaw

1 bulb fennel, very finely sliced
2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
2 tablespoons store-bought whole-egg mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon water

Method

  1. Place the bread, butter, thyme, salt and pepper in the bowl of a food processor and process in short bursts until mixture makes fine crumbs.
  2. Place the chicken on a baking tray and top generously with the crumb mixture. Place under a preheated hot grill (broiler) and cook for 7-8 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and crumbs are golden.
  3. To make the fennel slaw, combine the fennel, chives and parsley. Whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice and water and toss through the fennel mixture.
  4. Serve the salad with the schnitzel and lemon wedges.

Makes 2 servings.
