Chicken Schnitzel is defined by thin, tender, juicy cutlets coated in a fine, wrinkly crust that puffs away from the meat during frying. Fine store-bought bread crumbs held in place by an egg wash form a compact crust, and adding oil to the eggs makes the coating slightly elastic. Bathing the cutlets in oil quickly sets the crust so that the breading traps steam, which then causes the coating to puff away from the meat. Apple-Fennel Rémoulade is a creamy, crunchy, fragrant salad that pairs well with the chicken. Cutting the mayonnaise-based dressing with whole-grain mustard, caper brine, and lemon juice makes for a rich but bright and tangy salad.
