Polenta & Seed Crumbed Chicken Schnitzel with Shaved Cabbage Slaw Recipe: Ingredients

Serves 4

  • 1 tbsp coriander seeds, crushed 1 cup mixed seeds (see tip)
  • 3⁄4 cup polenta
  • 1⁄2 cup finely grated parmesan
  • 4 x 150g chicken thighs
  • 1⁄4 cup rice flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 300g green cabbage, shaved
  • 2 stalks celery, thinly sliced
  • Micro lemon balm or mint leaves
  • Vegetable oil, to shallow fry


Ranch Dressing Recipe 

  • 1⁄2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1⁄4 cup finely grated parmesan
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped chives
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar


1. To make the ranch dressing, place the buttermilk, mustard, parmesan, chives and vinegar in a small bowl, then whisk until combined. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.

2. Place coriander, mixed seeds, polenta and parmesan in a bowl and mix to combine. Set aside for later.

3. Place the chicken thighs between 2 sheets of baking paper. Using a meat mallet or rolling pin, gently pound each one until the thighs are 1cm thick. Dust the thighs in rice flour and shake off any excess.

4. Place egg in a bowl. Dip each thigh into the egg, then coat with the seed mixture.

5. To make the slaw, place the shaved cabbage, celery and lemon balm/mint leaves in a bowl and toss to combine.

6. Pour 1cm vegetable oil into a large, non-stick frying pan. Place over medium-high heat. Working in two batches, cook schnitzels for 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel, allow to rest for 5 minutes. Serve schnitzels with slaw and ranch dressing.


SMART TIP: We used a store-bought seed trail mix, however you can use a mixture of pepitas, sunflower seeds, buckwheat, sesame seeds and chia seeds.
