"schnitzel"!? In English?
I went to the Wikipedia page for Schnitzel in German, and the English version of the page was this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escalope
Well, it has its own English 'pedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schnitzel) and is defined in all major English dictionaries.
I do not know what one would say in the USA but I think that "escalope" might be a better translation of "șnițel" in this context. As far as I am aware, one only uses "Schnitzel" for [horror of horrors] an escalope of veal as in Wiener Schnitzel.
never heard that word in English before :O
