Golden cornflake crumbed chicken schnitzels with a crisp green wombok, apple and celery salad.
1. Separate and rinse lettuce leaves. Set aside. Thinly slice celery, spring onions, wombok and apple. Toss together with 1/2 tbsp vinegar and 1 tbsp olive oil. Set aside.

2. Combine the aioli with 1/2 tbsp vinegar, 1 tbsp olive oil and 2 tbsp water. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

3. Crush the cornflakes to resemble a crumb (see notes) and spread out onto a plate. Coat chicken with 1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tbsp oil and salt. Press down into crumbs to coat.

4. Heat frypan with 2 tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken (in batches if needed) for 4-5 minutes each side until golden and cooked through. Add more oil to pan in between if needed.

5. Arrange gem lettuces among plates. Top with shredded salad and drizzle over dressing. Slice chicken and serve on the side.

You can crush the cornflakes in the bag it comes in, or alternatively you can use a small food processor. 

Cayenne pepper can be quite hot so use to taste. You can also substitute it with ground sweet or smoked paprika.
