Chicken Schnitzel

  1. Put the flour in a rimmed plate and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Break the eggs into a second such plate, beat them lightly and add a little cold water.
  3. Put the crumbs in a third such plate and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Flour the cutlets and shake to remove excess. Dip them in the eggs, drain them well, and coat with breadcrumbs.
  5. In a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, warm half the oil and melt half the butter.
  6. Brown two cutlets at a time, 3 – 4 minutes on each side, adding oil as needed during cooking. Remove from pan, pat all over with absorbent paper, and keep warm.
  7. Wipe pan with paper towel, and heat the remaining oil and butter. Cook the other 2 cutlets the same way, and set aside.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
