I love every bite of this Chicken Schnitzel. Make sure to toast the sides, it’s the best! You would want to taste the lemon each bite because it is simply amazing so make sure to squeeze it in. Serve this with fried rice or just simply bread to make a nice sandwich. By the way, try adding cheese on top and you’ll see. Thank me later!
