Martha Stewart might be at an age when many people start to slow down, but in many ways, she’s just getting started. The lifestyle expert and chef has remained at the top of her chosen industry for decades, and now, with the advent of the social media age, Stewart is remaining connected with her fans by posting many new recipes on Instagram. In early 2021, Stewart’s page featured a recipe for chicken schnitzel, a traditional dish that is taken to the next level with the addition of a brand-new ingredient that elevates the crunchy topping to something truly special.

In an April 2021 Instagram post, Stewart’s team shared her special recipe for chicken schnitzel. As reported by Yahoo! Life, the recipe is prepared traditionally but includes unique ingredients in the breading for the chicken that take the dish up a notch. Stewart’s recipe is prepared by taking two boneless skinless chicken breasts and pounding them to uniform thinness. The chicken should then be seasoned with salt and pepper before getting dredged in flour, then in a beaten egg mixture.

Finally, the chicken breasts should be placed in a panko breadcrumb mixture that includes fresh dill and sesame seeds—for a “nuttier crunch,” according to Stewart. After the chicken breasts have been dredged and coated, they can be pan-fried in a heavy skillet until they are golden brown and thoroughly cooked. Stewart recommends that the chicken schnitzel be served with her watercress-apple relish for a fabulous, light dinner any day of the week.

Martha Stewart’s fan-favorite recipes

Over the years, Stewart has shared many delicious recipes with her fans. One of her classic recipes is for a simple dish that many Americans make every day: a grilled cheese sandwich. Stewart’s recipe calls for a decadent mixture of butter and mayonnaise to be spread on either side of the grilled cheese sandwich before grilling it to toasty perfection in a cast iron pan. You’ll know the sandwich is ready when the cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown. 

In early 2021, Stewart offered up her take on the viral feta pasta bake, made with pasta, feta cheese, tomatoes, and fresh basil. In usual Stewart style, the chef upgraded the ingredients to feature homemade marinara sauce instead of whole tomatoes, as well as smoky roasted piquillo peppers for a dish that is flavorful and the slightest bit spicy. The flavors combined make for a dish that can be enjoyed by anyone who loves savory pasta.
