Lemon Chicken Schnitzel with Low-Fat Mushroom Sauce

Lemon Chicken Schnitzel with Low-Fat Mushroom Sauce, the chicken is juicy and tender and no one would ever guess the mushroom sauce is low in fat.

Healthy, tender & juicy Lemon Chicken Schnitzels in a Low-Fat Mushroom Sauce !

I could eat a Lemon Chicken Schnitzel everyday ! And my family loves it as well.

In fact, it has been requested at least once a week since I made them the first time.

Served with the Low-Fat Mushroom Sauce , this is a winner for me, personally.

Although the recipe only includes a small amount of grated Lemon Rind, the taste of Lemon is definitely the main attraction.

I have mine without any cheese, but my hubby and the kids like to add a slice of cheese. Mostly Gouda – on top of the Schnitzel and then cover the whole dish with Mushroom Sauce.

Honestly, if I could, I would have added cheese to mine as well ! But, without the cheese it is just as delicious.

Healthy, tender & juicy Lemon Chicken Schnitzels in a Low-Fat Mushroom Sauce !

I recently bought a George Foreman Griller/Grill Combo. And I can not tell you how much I am enjoying my new cooking apparatus.

Everything cooks in half the time as usual, as I am using the grill (which looks like a press toaster) mostly, so the heat comes from above as well as the bottom.
