Non/fried Matzah Schniztel

Posted on

I’d eat a piece of shit if it was deep fried. I just can’t resist fried stuff. I needed to find a way to emulate that crunch without using fat. The answer.. Matzah!

I know what you’re thinking… Matzah is a piece of shit right? Matzah gets really bad press. Its PR department work 24/7 against claims such as “it tastes of crap”and “it’s nothing compared to bread.”

I used to agree with these claims until I realised that matzah shouldn’t be used for its taste, no, but actually it should be used for its texture. Coating chicken in the stuff gives it a great crunch. What’s best is that there is absolutely no fat in this recipe.

Yield: 4 chicken strips per hungry jew

Ingreds: chicken, matzah, egg

Method to the madness:

– crunch up the matzah like it’s 1999

– coat chicken breast in egg and then matzah crumbs

– bake for 25 mins until golden brown

    I agree with marniephie! That opening sentence prompted me to read more. I can’t promise I’ll try the recipe, but definitely in the forefront of my mind, now!

    Dear BJOD,

    Are you able to provide a convenient print option for your amazing recipes? Perhaps a .pdf version. I’d like to put my recipes into a big fat binder ;-D

    Hugs and loads of kisses,
