Chicken Schnitzel

Well it was raining last night here~in Whittier California~it was nice to finally see rain~I love it when it rains because after the rain~the smell of fresh rain dew is refreshing and nice~its all cloudy and grey which I happened to love and would prefer than the sun being out.There is one celebration I forgot completely last year to celebrate and now I am making up~OCTOBERFEST~hahaha~I heard about it you know~I been to places that celebrate OCTOBERFEST but really I was never let my self immerse in the celebration because it involves alot of drinking~and if you know me~and know me well~I don’t really drink~ but I decided to celebrate Octoberfest with German food~its not just beer but~Bratwurst~all kinds of German Sausages that I have not tasted yet but will soon I hope, and this one~Schnitzel~now from what I know~from traditional Schnitzel is that its made of veal~but I chose chicken instead because well I had chicken hahaha~ This by the way has to be like one of the easiest chicken meal I have made~except for the mash potatoes( not instant this time hahaha) I coated my with panko bread because its light and less heavy than bread crumbs and its pan-fry which I hardly ever do~so I splurge a bit and they are awesome and delicious~Note: Make some sort of gravy or serve with a lemon wedge~next time~to take it up from a delicious meal~to Awesome~I serve mine with mash potatoes but by all means serve this with what ever side dish you like~its perfect~and crispy fried~two things we all love~here is to OCTOBERFEST~
