Is it possible to skip the step I usually do in coating my shnitzel which is coat in egg and then coat in separate bag in crumbs.
Can I just make some kind of mixture of crumbs and oil and coat once?

Have you ever done the 2 coatings by shaking the chicken in 2 separate Ziploc bags?

Are you baking or frying? If you're frying, you can just do one batter coating (no crumbs).

I once made a baked chicken popper from Miriam Pascal's book where you took a mixing bowl, put your chicken in it, the you added the flour until the chicken was fully coated, then the egg and once it looked a little gluey you added the breadcrumbs and mixed again. It works really well with less mess. If you have her real life kosher cooking book I think the recipe is called BBQ Chicken Poppers.

I put the cutlet pieces in a storage bag
Add the flour & smush it around
Add egg & smush it around (sometimes looks a bit like a batter)
Dip in plate of breadcrumbs
Add little oil to Betty Crocker & delicious schnitzel in a few minutes!

I cut my cutlets up into smaller size pieces and lay out in a 9x13 pan. Pout in 1/4 bottle thousand island dressing. Mix it around to get cutlets covered in it. Pour crumbs over the top, turn pieces over, pour crumbs over the top. Spray with Pam.
Bake 25 minutes covered at 350. Uncover for 15 more (can pour some duck sauce over once uncovered if you like that)
This is my go to lazy recipe. Each piece doesn't come out perfectly coated but my kids don't mind.

My shortcut schnitzel is dipping in mayo and then dipping in flavored corn flake crumbs

I think I saw this in the bina magazine years ago. It’s actually very good.

If that's your shortcut, what's your long way?

Well... I didn’t really tell you what my real shortcut is—
Very often I buy breaded cutlets... the store did the dipping and I just fry!
The recipe I posted is my second to easiest schnitzel meal.

Yes, or dip in mayo mixed with ketchup or barbecue sauce and spices.

I drop them into a bag of egg or sauce as I cut them then I dip into crumbs and drop on the tray.

You can also use 1 bag. Drop the chicken pieces in a Ziploc. Add beaten eggs, seal and shake until coated. Open and add breadcrumbs on top. Seal and shake until evenly breaded. Remove with tongs because it's messy otherwise.

Or for baking you can lay chicken pieces in pan - smear with mayonnaise and pour on flavored corn flake crumbs
I’ve done this with chicken on the bone and add some potato slices underneath- comes out moist and full of flavor
Bake covered and uncover for the last few minutes

I sometimes buy shake n bake mixes and I shake each piece of chicken in the bag 1 at a time. No egg or mayo. Comes out so good.

I wonder if you could do that with regular flavored breadcrumbs?

Does it get more mushy sticky than if done in separate bags?
I usually do one bag with egg and next bag with crumbs. And I always make sure there is plenty extra crumbs and a big bag so I have room to shake it around and coat nicely. I end up throwing out a lot of the crumbs at end. If I don't put extras the coating doesn't stick well in the end though.

I know it sounds silly trying to avoid using two bags but any shortcut for something I do often makes a difference if you know what I mean

Put parchment paper in pan. Sprinkle crumbs of your choice in pan. You can put spices in now if you want or later.
Put cutlets in ziplock w mayo & spices. Mush around.
Place in pan.
Then you can either turn them over or just sprinkle more crumbs.
Can't be easier and NOTHING to clean.

I do this with fish also. Although I just sprinkly oil on top, I skip the mayo.

Yes more sticky which is why you need the tongs.

I marinate the shnitzel for several hours or overnight in a big bowl in a mixture of eggs + mustard + spices.
When I want to prepare the shnitzel, I just take out the pieces one by one, roll in bread crumbs and fry.
I find this easier and quicker than doing the two bowl egg + breading assembly line thing, although you do have to plan before for this method.

I do a lot of shnitzel in at one time. Lay the pieces on lined trays and freeze. When frozen I put in a ziplock baggie. Take out and defrost however much I need.

What is your breading process though?
