I would definitely enjoy this! The chicken looks wonderful with a crispy coating, and you retained such a nice vibrant green color on the asparagus.

Cathy said...

Love what panko does to these types of meals! And I'm a sucker for anything that has capers in it...I could eat those things straight from a jar.

Yummy! Panko coating is the BEST! One of my brothers and his son are chefs specializing in Japanese cuisine so I esp. appreciate this. :-) When are you going to try Tampura?! ;-)

The Absence of Alternatives said...

By the way, love the PRINT function. ;-)

Trish said...

Oh gosh....this looks super delicious! I use Panko all the time too. This recipe has the ingredients I love...capers, chicken...lemon juice...wonderful! Great shot. Thanks for stopping by my blog....have a great week!

Panko is really nice to make a light breading...looks delish!

Rebekah@Red's Nest said...

This looks really good. I love capers and can't wait to try it in my new kitchen. It looks easy enough for even me to try. Thanks for stopping by to take a look and yes I still had built-ins that worked from the '70's. So glad they're gone. I'm definately going to start visiting you each day.

Claudia said...

Gorgeous! I slice my chicken breasts in half to cut them thin. I love this recipe - I do something similar - but have not used panko - will definitely try. And your presentation is what more scurmptious than mine!

Grace said...

where are the noodles? as i just recently confessed, i adore the sound of music. so, seeing schnitzel without noodles just seems weird. :) just kidding--it looks absolutely delicious!

TKW said...

The schnitzel looks excellent with panko! I love the capers here too!

stephchows said...

mmm I love chicken with a nice panko crust! And I must say I rather enjoy pounding chicken flat with my fist LOL

D. @ Outside Oslo said...

That looks wonderful. I've never tried making schnitzel, but you make it look so easy!

There's a restaurant in Seattle that makes some incredible German food--especially during the month of October, when they base most of their menu on that cuisine. They make incredible weiner schnitzel, and now it's good to know I can easily make something similar myself.

Juliana said...

Wow, this a very nice chicken dish...looks falubous...so yummie! Love the way you decorated...capers and lemon!

Karine said...

I have never used panko in my cooking. I should though.

Your chicken dish looks delicious! I heart capers and lemon :)

Devon said...

Wow, the picture says it all. I have to make this.

Oh, yum. This is at least the second chicken schnitzel recipe that's called my name this season... looks SO GOOD. Nothing beats panko for crispness.
