All you really need is one good chicken schnitzel recipe…
Schniztel is typically a tenderized, flattened piece of breaded veal, chicken, turkey or beef fried in oil. While cultures across the globe have their own unique variations, schnitzel was brought to Israel by Eastern European Jews, where the classic veal was substituted with chicken, and it was coated with egg, breadcrumbs and sometimes sesame and paprika.
For this Ethiopian Chicken Schnitzel recipe, we’ve added in Ethiopian Berbere spice to blend Eastern European, Israeli and Ethiopian cuisines. Berbere is a traditional spice blend commonly found in Ethiopian and Eritrean dishes, and often contains dozens of spices, including red chili peppers, fenugreek, ginger, coriander, cardamom, allspice, cumin, cloves and cinnamon, among others. In fact, just like chicken soup, families often have their own secret recipe for berbere, making no two blends the same. This recipe makes a delicious Shabbat or Rosh Hashanah meal.
