Turkey schnitzel is a great family favourite and as it is served as individual portions, it makes serving very straightforward.   This can be made with chicken too.    Slightly different with a coating of mustard and mayonnaise before being coated with matzah meal, egg and finally breadcrumbs.   Really delicious!
