Ingredients:

Chicken Schnitzel:

8 boneless skinless chicken breast cutlets, pounded to about 1/4” thick

1 tbsp garlic powder

2 tsp kosher salt, divided

1/2 c all-purpose flour

3 large eggs, beaten

1 c fine breadcrumbs

1 c canola or vegetable oil, divided

Sweet Pea Pesto Noodles:

1 lb extra-wide egg noodles

2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

1 1/2 c frozen peas, thawed, divided

2 tbsp chopped chives

2 tbsp torn basil leaves

1 clove garlic, peeled

1 tsp lemon zest

1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1/4 c extra-virgin olive oil

Lemon wedges and chopped parsley, for garnish

How to make Chicken Schnitzel With Egg Noodles:

Chicken Schnitzel:

Step 1: Evenly season the pounded chicken breasts with garlic powder and half a tsp salt.

Step 2: In 3 separate shallow bowls, place the flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs.

Step 3: Coat the chicken first in flour. Shake off the excess and dip in egg, then in breadcrumbs.

Step 4: Over medium heat, preheat a large, rimmed skillet with half a cup of vegetable oil.

Step 5: Once the oil is hot, carefully add 2 breaded chicken pieces to the skillet using tongs. Fry for about 3 to 4 minutes on both sides until golden brown.

Step 6: To a large rimmed baking sheet fitted with a cooling rack, transfer the cooked schnitzel.

Step 7: Do the same process with the rest of the oil and chicken pieces.

Step 8: Place the chicken in a 200 degree F oven to keep them warm until ready to serve.

Sweet Pea Pesto Noodles:

Step 1: Prepare the egg noodle. Cook following the package directions. Once done, drain and move to a large bowl. Add melted butter, toss, and set aside.

Step 2: Add a cup of peas, chives, basil, garlic, lemon zest and juice, salt, and pepper in a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Process until finely chopped.

Step 3: Gradually add the olive oil to the food processor while it is running until combined into a smooth pesto.

Step 4: Add the pesto, warm noodles, and the rest of the peas in a large bowl. Toss to coat.

Step 5: Serve quickly. Garnish with schnitzel, lemon wedges, and chopped parsley. Enjoy!
