Chicken Schnitzel on a Stick


This fun, delicious party snack makes just about everyone happy. The tender meat is dredged in a mustard-beer bath before it’s dipped in crispy gluten-free panko bread crumbs, fried until perfectly golden brown, and finished with a squeeze of fresh lemon and a sprinkle of salt. And of course, it pairs beautifully with beer.

Serves 4 to 6

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 cup Cup4Cup flour

2 eggs, beaten

2 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon lager

2 cups gluten-free bread crumbs (We like Ian’s Gluten Free Panko

¼ cup grape-seed oil

1 lemon, cut into wedges

1. Place the flour on a plate and the bread crumbs on a second plate. Beat the eggs, mustard, and beer together in bowl; transfer the mixture to a third, rimmed plate.

2. Pound the chicken breasts into ¼-inch-thick cutlets, then cut into 1-inch strips. Skewer each cutlet strip onto its own 6-inch wooden skewer.

3. One by one, dredge each skewer first in the flour, then in the egg mixture, and then in the bread crumbs.

4. Heat the grape-seed oil in a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, fry each strip until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes on each side.

5. Finish with a squeeze of lemon and salt.
