Schnitzel is a German comfort food dish that we’ll gladly embrace from across the pond any day. This easy and satisfying version was so unanimously loved the first time it showed up on our menu that we’re bringing it back by popular demand. Thinly-pounded chicken breast is breaded, then pan-fried instead of deep-fried for crispy-coated meat that’s tender, not greasy. Plus, we’re crazy about the bright salad of crisp cabbage, seasonal red pear, tangy gorgonzola cheese, and apple cider vinaigrette.
