Fried Chicken

Serves 4


  • 1 fryer chicken, 2-1/2 pounds, cut into 8 serving pieces
  • 4 tbsps Fairway Olive Oil, plus oil for frying
  • 4 tbsps fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp grated lemon zest (optional)
  • 2 tbsps grated orange zest (optional)
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic (optional)
  • All-purpose flour for coating
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Lemon wedges for serving


  1. Place the chicken pieces in a shallow non-reactive bowl and add the 4 tablespoons olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and the lemon and orange zest and garlic, if using. Turn to coat well, cover and refrigerate for a few hours.
  2. Pour the olive oil to a depth of 3 inches into a large, deep frying pan and place over high heat. While the oil is heating, remove the chicken pieces from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Spread the flour on a plate and season with salt and pepper. Dip the chicken pieces in the flour, coating lightly on all sides, and then in the beaten eggs.
  3. Slip the chicken pieces into the hot oil and fry, turning as needed, until golden on all sides and cooked through, about 20 minutes. Using tongs, transfer briefly to paper towels to drain, then arrange on a platter. Serve hot with lemon wedges.
