Matzo meal wienerschnitzel -- yes or no?

Ever used matzo meal to bread thin cutlets -- veal, chicken, turkey, or pork -- for schnitzel? Or Scallopine Milanese, if you want to be all Italian about it?

You know the routine: Shake cutlets in seasoned flour, dip in an egg wash, dredge in crumbs, then saute in a couple tablespoons of butter mixed with olive oil.

I've been using Japanese panko crumbs for years, because they're trendy, but they don't really adhere to the meat as well as they should.

I made a big pot of matzo ball soup today, so I have plenty of extra matzo meal to go through in the next few weeks.
