Chicken Schnitzel with Sweet Pepper, Garlic, Herb Lime Butter

When we were in Copenhagen, I experienced the most delicious schnitzel of my life. It was a classic pork schnitzel pounded thin and fried until crispy, and on top was a beautiful serving of butter with capers, shallots and garlic. The simplicity of it all was just outstanding and I learned that schnitzel (and it’s chicken counterpart) doesn’t need much. I knew I wanted to make my own schnitzel dish with a unique spin, but my own twist on it didn’t come to me until I was at the Mediterranean Bar at Whole Foods. If you don’t know what that is – the Mediterranean bar is where they keep all the olives and pickly things so you can serve yourself.

Anyway, at this Mediterranean bar, I found Peruvian sweety drop peppers (which are the size of caperberries with the flavor of a sweet pepper.) I also am familiar with Peppadew peppers, which are sweet pickled peppers. So, I thought, this is it. I must make a butter with these, garlic, herbs and lime. Then this recipe was born! But don’t worry, if you can’t find Peruvian sweety drop peppers, jarred pimentos, Peppadew peppers or just fresh sweet red peppers also work great here. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
