DIRECTIONS

  • In a large casserole dish, whisk the lemon juice, extra-virgin olive oil, and salt to blend.
  • Add the chicken pieces and turn to coat.
  • Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to 1 day, turning the chicken pieces occasionally.
  • In a large cast iron frying pan or other heavy frying pan, add enough oil to come 1/3-inch up the sides of the pan.
  • Heat the oil over medium heat.
  • Meanwhile, drain the marinade from the chicken.
  • Pat the chicken dry with paper towels.
  • Sprinkle with pepper.
  • Working in 2 batches, dredge the chicken in the flour to coat completely. Shake off the excess flour and then carefully add the chicken to the hot oil.
  • Fry until the chicken is golden brown and just cooked through, turning occasionally, about 25 minutes.
  • Using tongs, transfer the chicken to a paper towel-lined plate to drain the excess oil.
  • Arrange the fried chicken on a warm platter and serve with the lemon wedges and parsley.
