Crispy Tuscan Fried Chicken Recipe With Lemon & Garlic Is How They Do It in Italy

In Florence, Italy, they fry chicken with a basic flour and egg coating, but pack it full of flavor with a lemon, garlic and herbs. It is absolutely delicious!

This easy Tuscan fried chicken recipe has just a few ingredients, but will make you want to renew that passport. To save money, though, you can make this chicken recipe at home.

Cuisine: Italian
Prep Time: 1 hour to marinate
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour and 40 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 whole chicken, cut up
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 4 eggs
  • oil, for frying

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the lemon juice, garlic, rosemary and thyme in a plastic zipper bag. Add the chicken and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  2. Put the flour into a bowl and the eggs, beaten well, into another bowl. Heat about 2 inches of oil in a skillet until it's 375 degrees F. 
  3. Remove the chicken from the marinade. Dip the chicken in the flour and then into the eggs. Place in the hot oil and cook until golden brown on both sides and cooked through (165 degrees F), about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining chicken.
