This chicken schnitzel recipe produces a delicious schnitzel which can be further enhanced by topping with a sauce of your choice – the most popular being cheese sauce. However, I do find that the sauces hide the true flavor of the schnitzel. I, therefore, prefer to serve the schnitzel without a sauce.
