On its own, schnitzel can be pretty heavy, but this recipe includes a lovely salad of fall fruit, endive and radish mixed with a lemon-shallot vinaigrette. I took liberties with this recipe and swapped out the apple for pear and eliminated the frisee lettuce because my store was out. I am such a rule-breaker. But only when it comes to food. Other than that, I'm pretty much a goody-goody.
I lurve bosc pears. They are so crisp and light.
Remind me to tell you the story someday about another type of chicken cutlet, a bridesmaid dress, and a dance floor. I'm still recovering from "the incident".
I served it alongside some winter squash that I roasted with maple syrup sprinkled with chipolte powder. It sucked; don't make it. But do make the schnitzel. Then say it three times fast and giggle a lot.
