#15MinuteDinner – Dijon Chicken Schnitzel with Leafy Greens and Tomatoe Salad (Carbs Free)

A new category of 15 minute recipes for those of us who don’t have a huge amount of time but hungry mouths to feed. This quick and simple Dijon Chicken Schnitzel recipe is super simple to make and very yummy and yes, it literally takes 15 minutes to prepare.

I dont always have time for huge dinners and this year, Cameron and I are trying to eat less takeaways for health and budget reasons which has resulted in me getting to do one of my favorite things, read recipe books. I always feel inspired and love creating my own versions of the recipes.
