Yummy chicken

Last night I made another Jamie recipe. It's like chicken schnitzel but with parsley and garlic crust. It was sooooo good. I made it all from scratch with my new food processor too :)

I didn't take any pics of it though :( Silly me!!

What you need is

I doctored the recipe as I was using 3 chicken breasts (so that was for the 4 of us).
2 cloves of garlic
1 lemon
10 jacobs cream crackers (if you google you will see what type they are, in Australia we have an alternative to that)
50g buter
6 sprigs fresh flat leaf parsely (or continental as some call it)
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Flour (if you add flour to your chicken before you dip it in egg)
Eggs for dipping
olive oil
chicken breasts (this is for 3).

Skin your breast if it isn't already done so and butterfly it or cut like you would do for schnitzel.

Pell garlic and zest the lemon. Put crackers into food processor (I guess if you bash them a bit before hand a blender could do it) with the butter, garlic, parsley, lemon zest and pinch of salt and pepper). Whiz until very fine, pour onto plate.
sprkinkle flour onto another plate, put eggs into a bowl and beat with fork.
bash your chicken so its flat
dip the chicken in the flour (if you don't want to you don't have to) then into the egg and then into the flavoured crumbs, making sure the crumbs stick nice and good.

To cook you can bake or fry. If baking preheat oven to highest emp and place chicken on baking tray for 15 mins. If frying (I fry) put fry pan on medium heat, add some olive oil and cook breast 5 mins or so on each side until cooked through.
Serve with wedge of lemon. We had ours with salad and mashed potato.


  1. Dude! Vac-pack that and send it this way! Sounds fantastic!

    You're cooking from COOK by Jamie Oliver?

  2. LOL I would if I could, but you are a food genius you can do it now I have passed on the recipe!
    It's from his book Ministry of Food.

  3. Hey Nicole!

    I really would recommend the Bringing Up Boys book.
    I haven't read a whole lot of parenting books, but Dr Dobson explains very well how boys work/think and how we as parents can approach our sons and encourage them to grow into secure and confident men (he has a chapter just for mothers relating to their sons, tho it wasn't as deep as it could've been I thought.)

    I grew up with younger brothers and still found the book to be insightful. :)

  4. Hi Nicole,
    I have to try this recipe, my boys are stack on chicken fingers( home made), but I want to try something different.

  5. Hi Laura, this is such a nice alternative to the usual chicken schnitzel (and chicken nuggets which is what my kids love too) but they loved this.
