Turkey Schnitzel Recipe

Turkey Schnitzel Recipe

Sharing is caring!

If I cook a recipe at least once every two weeks, it is a turkey schnitzel recipe made only with flour and egg and without breadcrumbs. Because this is made from chicken breast fillets, these schnitzels will be very juicy and tasty, which is why they are among our favourites, along with the fried breaded pork chops recipe.

Compared to other schnitzel recipes, this recipe is similar to Pariser schnitzel because I don’t use breadcrumbs, and I’m just not going to make it from veal but turkey. It is a simple recipe in which we need only three ingredients, but I assure you that it is delicious.

Ingredients

The essential ingredient is turkey breast; I will use 1200 g of the sliced breast for six servings. Try to use fresh breasts because you will get some delicious schnitzels.

Next, I need four large size free-range eggs and 150 g of self-raising wheat flour; if you do not have it, use regular wheat flour.

Preparing the Ingredients

First, we prepare the turkey breast. If it is whole, you will have to slice it into slices of about 1 cm (0.5 inches), and we leave them like this without thinning them with a meat tenderizer. They will be much juicier and softer if we leave them like this. I season the breast slices with two teaspoons of sea salt and one teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper.

In a bowl, I will break the four eggs, season them with half a teaspoon of sea salt and mix them well with the beater until they obtain a fluid and homogeneous consistency.

How to Make the Turkey Schnitzel Recipe?

I will traditionally make the turkey schnitzel recipe, meaning I pass them through the flour and then through the beaten eggs. But whoever wants can combine flour with eggs and make a batter, but I now prefer the first option.

I will pass each slice of meat through the flour to cover it well on all sides, after which I will gently shake off the excess flour.

We will pass them through beaten eggs; the flour will make the eggs stick better to the meat. If you want the bread to be thicker, repeat the process and pass them through the flour again and then through the eggs again, you will get some vast schnitzels.

In a deeper frying pan, I will heat more sunflower oil, about 250 ml (1 cup), because it seems that if I will be deep-fried, they will be tastier. The oil temperature is critical; if it is too low, the schnitzels will be soaked with oil, but if it is too high, they will burn quickly outside, and inside they will remain raw.

So, when the oil is hot at medium temperature, we put the slices of meat to fry, taking care not to overload the pan.

Fry them for about 3-4 minutes on each side, at medium temperature, until they turn golden.

Take out the fried schnitzels in a bowl or container lined with a paper towel to absorb the excess oil and continue the process until you finish with the whole amount of meat.

Now is when I can’t wait and try the tasty schnitzels; I eat one even hot. It’s so soft and fluffy, a real delight.

Serving

Serve hot because they are the best, along with side dishes such as mashed potatoes, rice or the best vegetable stew. I also use them in sandwiches, with cucumbers, tomatoes and possibly cheddar cheese.
