INGREDIENTS for 4 people
  • 2 lb chicken
  • 1 ¼ cups Extra Virgin Olive oil
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 oz parsley
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt t.t.
  • white pepper t.t.
  • 3 eggs
  • all-purpose flour (for a frying batter)
  • frying oil to fry

Carefully wash and dry the chicken. Cut into 8 pieces.


Prepare a marinade by add the oil, lemon juice, parsley, crushed garlic, rosemary, chopped bay leaf, salt and white pepper in a small bowl. Mix together using a fork. Emerge the chicken in the marinade and let sit for a couple of hours, stirring every so often.


In the meantime, mix together the eggs and enough flour to make a light, not very dense, frying batter.


Remove the chicken from the marinade, then cover with the batter. Cook the chicken by completely emerging it in a pan of boiling oil. Once well cooked and golden in color, remove the chicken pieces using a skimmer and place them on a plate lined with paper towels.

Season your Florentine chicken with a pinch of salt and garnish with a chopped parsley and lemon slices.

Serve hot.
