Panko Coated Chicken Schnitzel

What a nice meal. The flavors from the sauce were a perfect blend. The chicken was easy to prepare. The cutlets were moist and with the crispy coating. Loved it!  I found the recipe on the Food and Wine site. The recipe is from Thomas Keller of the French Laundry.

Panko Coated Chicken Schnitzel

Ingredients-
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 eggs, beaten
2 cups panko
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 6 ounces each), butterflied and pounded 1/4-inch-thick
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup canola oil
6 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons capers
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped parsley

Method-
Set the flour, eggs and panko in three separate shallow bowls. Season the chicken cutlets with salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken in the flour, shaking off any excess, then dip in the eggs and coat thoroughly with the panko, pressing lightly to adhere.

In each of 2 large skillets, heat 1/4 cup of canola oil. Add the chicken and cook over moderately high heat, turning once, until golden and crispy, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with salt, then transfer

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the butter and cook over moderately high heat until browned and nutty, about 4 minutes. Stir in the capers, lemon juice and parsley; spoon over the chicken and serve.
