    4 hrs 20 mins

  • Yields: 6


12 smaller burger sized crumbed chicken schnitzels

6 small ripe tomatoes (or 3 large), diced small, drained well

6 rashers streaky bacon, diced

1T dried Italian herbs

2/3 cup BBQ sauce

2 cups grated tasty cheese


1Place the schnitzel into slow cooker in single layer

2Combine the drained diced tomato, diced bacon, herbs and sauce and mix well. Spoon this mix generously over each schnitzel

3Cook on low for 3hrs 45mins with tea towel trick in place

4Add generous amount of cheese to top of each schnitzel and cook for an additional 15mins to melt well

5Serve with side salad and chips


1You can of course swap these smaller schnitzels for full sized ones if you prefer

2I do mine in two slow cookers at once but you can reduce number to your size/family needs

3The tea towel trick ensures they stay crisp and crunchy, not soggy

4Check out the upcoming book edition 'Slow Cooker Central - READY, SET, SLOW' for another new and exciting schnitzel recipe! Books available on the SHOP page of this website

These were really delicious πŸ˜‹. A nice change from a traditional parmi. Another recipe to keep. Thanks Paulene.

Fresh, just drained of the juices it releases when you dice them … so they aren’t too wet on your schnitty πŸ™‚

Hi Pauline have a question regarding the tomatoes is that tin all fresh as you have said to drain well so I was confused about that thanks .

Another 5 star recipe! Actually was not the planned dinner, but the meat i had thawed was not pleasant when I unwrapped it πŸ˜’ so this stepped in as a rescue dinner and so glad it did!
Easy, used pantry staples I already had and SO delicious. I used the Ingham boxed Louisiana hot spice schnitzels, added onion and liquid smoke to the sauce mix πŸ‘Œ absolutely will be doing again!

These are crumbed πŸ™‚ No pre frying … in as they come

Do you crumb these in flour egg breadcrumbs and then put straight into the slow cooker or fry them first?
