GIANT Schnitzel

Jun 3, 2022 | What's On Blog

What possibly could be better than the Aussie pub favourite; Chicken Schnitzel?
Without a doubt that would be the Bowen Hotel’s GIANT Schnitzel. This sizable schnitzel is house-made, golden crumbed, full chicken breast schnitzel, and served with your choice of sides. But why stop there? Add your favourite toppers and upgrade to a mouth-watering Chicken Parmigiana!

Even though it’s hard to believe that this pub classic isn’t an Aussie creation, the Chicken Parmigiana has its origins in the United States, where it was popularized among Italian-American communities. Italian immigrants created the meal, which quickly became conceived as an authentically Italian dish. Of course, it does take its inspiration from Italy.

This classic pub favourite is typically served in Australia with a side of chips and salad, although there is some dispute as to whether the chips should be served under or next to the chicken.  The dish’s informal name varies across regions, with ‘parmy’, ‘parmi’ and ‘parma’ the most popular variations. Whatever you choose to call the Bowen Hotel’s mammoth dish, it definitely isn’t for the faint-hearted.   Whether you tackle this one alone or wish to share your meal with a friend, the Bowen Hotel is the perfect place to sit back and relax.
