RG Dukkah Crusted Chicken w/ slaw

Spring has sprung, and we are celebrating the beginning of the new season with our take on a crowd favourite, the chicken schnitzel. A quick and delicious recipe that is perfect for a weeknight dinner with family, or a night entertaining guests. Seriously tasty dukkah crusted chicken, served on a bed of creamy apple slaw and topped with crunchy freeze-dried persimmons & sweet RG sticky balsamic. 



Serves: 4-6
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes


For the Chicken

  • RG Extra Virgin Olive Oil (for pan-frying)
  • 2 large chicken breasts (sliced on the diagonal into 6 schnitzels total)
  • 1 cup of plain flour
  • Pinch of salt & Pepper (to season flour)
  • 4 eggs + 1/2 cup water (for egg wash)
  • RG Yarrawonga Dukkah
  • RG Sticky balsamic
  • RG freeze-dried persimmons
  • lemon wedge for garnish

For the slaw

  • 1 large packet of slaw mix
  • 1 apple sliced julienne 
  • 1/2 cup of chopped spring onion
  • 1/2 cup of chopped raw broccolini
  • 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • OPTIONAL handful of freshly chopped parsley, coriander and mint
  • 1/3 cup aioli

    1. Place chicken breast slices first into the flour mix, followed by eggwash, then finally dukkah. Repeat one-by-one until all chicken pieces have been crumbed.
    2. Heat a large frying pan on a moderate-high heat and cover the bottom with Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
    3. Once oil has reached temp (oil should bubble when chicken is placed in) place 2-3 pieces in and cook until crunchy & golden brown, flip and continue to cook the other side for a further 3-4 minutes. Repeat until all chicken is cooked, placing the cooked chicken on paper towel to drain off any excess oil. 
    4. In a large mixing bowl combine slaw, apple, broccolini, spring onion, parmesan & optional herbs and toss. Add aioli to the mix and toss again until slaw is evenly dressed. 
    5. Serve chicken on a generous bed of slaw, garnish with RG freeze-dried persimmons, lemon and RG sticky balsamic.
