The service of the schnitzel is most important to the customers satisfaction, it may come with a side of vegetables of chips. Presentation must be immaculate, and the target is a crispy, golden crumbing on the outside. Any schnitzel that is not served immediately must be held in a heat pan, that is placed in a heating device that can hold the schnitzel at 65⁰. The cooking process involved is deep frying. The thawed schnitzel must enter the deep fryer for an appropriate amount of time, and must reach a the optimum temperature of approx. 65⁰(C). The preparation of this frozen chicken schnitzel is crucial. The only process involved with preparing frozen chicken schnitzel is thawing. Safe thawing can occur in either the fridge, cold water, or the microwave. The fridge, whilst the lengthiest method of thawing, is my choice as it does not allow a build up of pathogens, therefore preventing any chance of cross contamination.
