A pub favorite in the comfort of your own home! Deliciously crispy chicken schnitzels with a rich mushroom gravy…perfect!

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 4 Chicken breast fillets, Halved
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 2 1/2 cups Breadcrumbs
  • 2 TBS Butter
  • 4 Spring onions, chopped
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 400g Fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 TBS Butter
  • 4 TBS Plain flour
  • 450ml Beef stock
  • 2 TBS Balsamic vinegar (to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp Black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Olive oil


  1. Start by placing the halved fillets between 2 sheets of glad wrap and lightly pound with a rolling pin (or the likes) to flatten out until an even thickness
  2. Dredge each schnitzel in egg and then bread crumb, making sure to press on to coat evenly. Set aside on a baking tray
  3. Heat some oil over a medium heat, then cook the schnitzels in batches until the are all cooked through and nice and golden. Place onto a clean baking tray and place into oven to keep warm while making the gravy
  4. To make the gravy: Melt 2 TBS butter in a pan over medium-high heat and fry the onions until soft. Add the garlic and cook another minute.
  5. Add the mushrooms and cook 5-7 minutes or until golden and the liquid from the mushrooms has evaporated.
  6. Add the remaining butter and melt. Add the flour, stir to combine and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring continually.
  7. Add the beef broth, vinegar, thyme, sugar, salt and pepper. Whisk continually until the gravy is thickened
  8. Cover and simmer on low, stirring occasionally, for 5-10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste


If you want to make this gravy into a creamy version, just add a few TBS heavy cream at the last step!

  • Just add a few more veggies and its my favourite pub meal. Yummy schnitty with mushie gravy….divine


  • My husband would have loved this. I used to make him a mushroom gravy but it was very basic. I’d peel the mushrooms and slice them. Next I’d heat 2 tbsp butter and once melted and sizzling I’d add the mushrooms until soft. Next I’d add in 1/4 to 1/2 cup of cream and stir until just beginning to thicken. I then poured it over the meat (usually steak for him).


  • Perfect dinner for me.


  • Love a good mushroom sauce but definitely prefer mine creamy. My hubby would die for meals like this, so they’re a common dish in our home.


  • I’m not into eating meat/poultry but love mushrooms with onions & garlic…actually I could eat a whole plate of just that ;)


  • Ooh, yes this looks so yummy. I love mushies but tend to only have them on steak. Hadn’t considered this.


  • Looks delicoous!


  • It’s not an aussie pub if they don’t have a chicken Schnitzels. Thanks for sharing your sauce recipe


  • can never get the fry part right but at least this makes it black and white what i need to do


  • Good recipe! This looks like it would be mega delicious


  • Adding this to my dinner plan next week.

  • I would love this as we eat a bit of chicken schnitzel at home,love the mushrooms on top!
