Watch the Chicken Schnitzel video recipe:


  1. Every time I watch your videos, especially the ones with your Nonna, I start to cry happy tears. I remember my Nonna and my Bisnonna and my mother and I all in the kitchen cooking when I was a little girl. We would make Cotoletta all the time! And my Bisnonna would make it almost exactly the same as your Nonna does. Thank you so much for sharing, and grazie, Nonna Igea for being so wonderful and sharing your food with us. 🙂

  2. Wonderful video! My family is from Pescara, and I’ve been trying to learn more and more about where we came from over the years! Give all of my love to your family <3

  3. Madò! Mi piace tantissimo vedere alla tua nonna cucinare! È una buona nonna, davvero! Allora, anche qui cuciniamo le cotolette di pollo, ma lo chiamano ”Pechuga ( petto (di pollo)) empanada (della parola Pane)”. Un abbraccio alla nonna e anche a te! 😀
