Here I cut an 8oz. chicken breast into 4- 2 oz. slices . If the breast is smaller you will need 2
Grate a cup of Cheddar cheese
Set up the breading station. One pan for crushed chips and one for cheese
Dip the cutlets in the egg and then the crushed chips , then back into the egg and then into the cheese.
Let the Schnitzels rest for about 15 minutes before frying for the breading to set.
Heat up some olive oil in a large frying pan on medium heat and fry the Schnitzels to a crispy brown on each side.
Here is a nicely Browned Schnitzel
Here is a close up of the browned crushed corn chip and cheese crust.
Here is the Sauce I made.
are Roasted and Peeled Hatch chilies.
Brown the onions and garlic in a little bit
Add the tomatoes, chilies, like juice and simmer.
I blended half of the sauce in a food processor to give it some thickness. This step is optional if you like it chunky. You can also use a nice salsa and heat if you want.
Top the Schnitzel with some of the sauce, grated cheese, some chopped green onions, and garnished this with some typical Southwestern foods like
