About this recipe: Greek fried chicken is not the same as your American variety. Fried in olive oil and served with lemon, there's a definite Mediterranean flair to this recipe. Serve with a green salad or Greek salad on the side.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 skinless chicken pieces
  • 125ml Greek olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 1 dash cinnamon
  • 1 dash poultry seasoning
  • 125ml olive oil for frying
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:5min marinating  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. In a medium bowl, combine chicken pieces with 125ml olive oil, lemon juice, pepper, salt, oregano, cinnamon and poultry seasoning. Allow the chicken to soak in the oil and seasonings for five minutes. Better yet, rub the marinade into the chicken using your hands.
  2. Heat 125ml olive oil over low heat in a deep frying pan with a lid to fit (to keep the juices in the chicken). Carefully lay the chicken pieces in the frying pan. Put the lid on the pan, and cook until chicken is done, about 20 minutes, flipping pieces occasionally. Increase heat to medium-high, and cook just long enough to make the outside of the chicken brown.
  3. Serve hot, garnished with lemon wedges. Squeeze some lemon on the chicken for delicious added flavour.
