Who says traditional dishes can’t be both delicious and good for you?
If you’ve grown up savoring chicken schnitzel but are concerned about the excessive oil content at this stage of life, then worry no more! Our baked chicken schnitzel recipe offers a healthy yet flavorful alternative.
Picture this: tender, succulent chicken on the inside, paired with a perfectly crunchy, golden exterior. The best part? We use just a tiny amount of oil since there’s no deep-frying involved. Instead, we take the healthier route and bake it in the oven, making it a family-friendly choice.
To ensure a burst of flavors, we marinate the chicken before cooking, allowing the spices to infuse the meat, creating a truly delectable experience. And for that delightful crunch with every bite, we’ve added sesame seeds to the coating.

Baked Chicken Schnitzel
- 1 lbs. chicken cutlets (sliced (½ kg))
- 1 tsp. grilling chicken seasoning
- ½ tsp. sweet paprika
- ¼ tsp. cumin
- 1 tsp. natural onion powder
- 1 tsp. date syrup
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 egg
- 1 cup spelt breadcrumbs / regular
- ¼ cup sesame seeds
- Olive oil cooking spray
- Start by mixing all the batter ingredients in a bowl.
- Add the chicken cutlets to the bowl and mix the pieces with the batter until fully coated.
- Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap, and keep the chicken in the fridge for two to six hours. That will insure the chicken absorbs all the flavors.
- In a separate bowl, mix the breadcrumbs with sesame seeds.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
- Dip the chicken pieces into the coating and place them on the baking sheet.
- Spray the chicken pieces with olive oil cooking spray and bake for 15 minutes until golden.
- Flip the chicken pieces and bake for five minutes.
- It’s best to use chicken fillet cutlets.
- Don’t marinade the chicken pieces for less than two hours before baking, or they won’t taste that delicious. Two essential tips can make this recipe a success.
