Making Shnitzel with Dan-O's Seasoning


Chicken Schnitzel is the perfect Oktober Fest treat, or just good old-fashioned comfort food on a cold day. We’ve added some Dan-O’s to ours to make it Dan-O-Myte!


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as desired
  • 6 chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise (butterflied)
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon Dan-O’s
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 large lemon, zested

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and drizzle olive oil over foil.
  3. Place baking sheet in the preheated oven.
  4. Flatten chicken breasts so they are all about 1/4-inch thick.
  5. Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  6. Mix flour, Dan-O’s, and paprika together on a large plate.
  7. Beat eggs with salt and pepper in a shallow bowl.
  8. Mix bread crumbs and lemon zest together on a separate large plate.
  9. Dredge each chicken piece in flour mixture, then egg, and then bread crumbs mixture and set aside in 1 layer on a clean plate. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
  10. Fry in a cast-iron skillet for 3-5 minutes on each side, or until done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
