Garden Herb Fried Chicken

Who doesn’t love fried chicken? I mean ok maybe vegans and vegetarians… but hey. Chicken works in our house and we LOVE it.

I made this Garden Herb Fried Chicken a few weeks ago and it had my husband licking his plate. It was so fresh, crisp and juicy. I literally was thinking that day of what I could possibly throw together that would be yummy? I had to prune some of my herbs back in the garden so I thought about experimenting with fried chicken tenderloins might be worth a shot.

It was a huge success!!!

I hope this recipe works for you as much as it worked for us.


1 lb chicken breast tenderloins

3 eggs

1/2 cup milk

3 sprigs of parsley

3 sprigs of thyme

3 sprigs oregano

1T olive oil

1 clove of garlic

2 cups four

1 T Salt

1 T pepper

1 T dried thyme

1 T onion powder

1 T paprika

1 T garlic powder

1 T mustard powder

Dash cayenne pepper

Your choice of frying medium. (Lard, shortening, vegetable oil)


In one bowl mix the eggs and milk. Either finely chop the fresh herbs or mash them in a mortar and pestle with the olive oil. Add to the egg and milk mix. Add chicken and marinate one hour. Mix all dry ingredients. Add the chicken to the dry ingredients then back to the wet. Then dry again. Add to already heated oil and fry, be sure to stay by the stove for safety and watch. Flip every two minutes until golden brown.
