Recipe Ideas - Thyme & Parmesan Schnitzel

I have always loved schnitzel. Pork or chicken, either is fine, and this is the hands-down best schnitzel I've ever had. And soon, it'll be yours, too!

Thyme and parmesan elevate this recipe and pairs well with an apple salad or mashed potatoes - whichever you prefer! 

Thyme & Parmesan Schnitzel

What You'll Need:

  • 2 pork cutlets (or 2 chicken breasts)
  • A couple of sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper
  • Oil


  1. Strip the thyme from the stems and give it a rough chop.
  2. In a shallow dish, mix the panko, parmesan, and thyme.
  3. Pound out the pork cutlets or chicken breasts to the desired thickness. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  4. Season both sides with salt and pepper, then cover with a thin layer of mayonnaise. 
  5. Bread both sides, pressing the panko mixture firmly, so it all sticks nicely.
  6. Heat a fair amount of oil in a non-stick pan on medium heat. Fry until golden brown, around 5 minutes per side.
  7. Serve hot with a nice side salad (an apple-dill salad is my favourite) or go traditional with mashed potatoes or fries!
