Spice Packet Shnitzel - The Movie!!

Dear Friends,
I present to you the second attempt at Edible Experience Kosher Everyday – The Movie!  I had some early showings (sort of like Canne – but not so much).  The early reviews have been very positive with people commenting that they did learn new ideas from the movie.  I had one not so rave review – “Good energy and presence…but everyone knows how to make Shnitzel!”  I will take the last one in stride and focus on the great reviews!  Please feel free to leave your comments and reviews below – I’m made of pretty strong stuff J!  If you like it...share it with your friends and family - the more the merrier!!

Remember the Spice Packet Shnitzel?!
Oh, and don’t forget to wait for the bloopers after the movie credits ;-)…have fun and enjoy the show!!


Here’s a link to the original Spice Packet Shabbat blog and a copy of the "Spice Packet Snitchel" recipe.  Enjoy!!  

3-4       pounds             boneless skinless chicken breast cutlets
2          cups                 unflavored bread crumbs
1          envelope           Spice Packet Mix
                                    Nonstick vegetable spray

1          large                 “Ziplock” gallon bag
1          very sharp        knife
1          large                 skillet

Mix bread crumbs and Spice Packet mix in a large gallon size “Ziplock” bag.  Rinse cutlets under cool water.  Slice the cutlets in half lengthwise with a sharp knife.  Place five or six cutlets in the bag.  Seal and shake until all the cutlets are completely coated with bread crumbs.  Spray a large skillet with nonstick vegetable spray, turn heat to medium/high.  Place the cutlets in a single layer in the skillet and cook until the edges of the cutlets start to turn white, around 5 minutes.  Spray the cutlets with vegetable spray then flip.  Cook another 4-5 minutes until golden brown.  If the cutlets seem to be browning too quickly, turn the heat down to medium.  Cook cutlets in batches then serve warm. 
You can also bake the cutlets in a 350° F oven.  Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick vegetable spray.  Spread cutlets in a single layer on the pan. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.

I'd love to hear from you!! Please feel free to leave comments, suggestions and recipes after each blog!!!  Don't forget to pass this blog on to your friends and family!!

  1. I thought the video was cute and I thought the outtakes were adorable! I'm gonna try this recipe at home :)

  2. Great recipe and terrific video, but I actually prefer it in non-video form. Takes too long to watch and have to then go back to get all details.

  3. My praise was insufficient - this is really an *excellent* video. But I would like for it to also have the recipe below (since I just had to watch it again when I came back for the recipe)...

  4. Hi Liba! Thanks for your comment! You can find the recipe for the Spice Packet Shnitzel in the "Shabbat Spice Packet Blog" :

    Hope that helps! I love your feedback...please make sure to pass this blog on to your friends and family! Thanks Again!!!
