How To Make Herb Crusted Chicken Texas Roadhouse Recipe?
- 3 lbs. Chicken (thighs, drumsticks, and breasts)
- 1 Cup Flour
- 3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
- Flour to coat chicken
- 2 tsp Salt or 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper
- 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
- 2 Tbsp. Fresh Sage leaves, or four tablespoons dried sage leaves (1 1/4 oz.) crumbled in a small bowl.
- 2 Tbsp. Fresh Rosemary leaves or four tablespoons of dried rosemary.
- 2 Tbsp. Fresh Thyme leaves or 1 1/4 oz. Thyme crumbled in a small bowl.
- 3/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/3 Cup Brandy (or Cognac)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For the Chicken, remove excess fat from where it has been deep-fried or roasted and discard. Place the pieces on a sheet pan. Combine salt and oils in a bowl and rub the seasoning on both sides of each piece.
Combine herbs in a small bowl; roll each piece into one of the herbs. Coat all sides of each piece with one side first, then flip and massage with your hands to evenly distribute seasoning all over the pieces. Place the herbs-scented side down.
Roll each piece into the flour, coating all sides, and shake off any excess. Place on a sheet pan and bake for 15 minutes.
While the Chicken is baking, place brandy in a flameproof medium-sized saucepan over medium heat until it begins to boil; remove from heat. Combine oil, rosemary, thyme, sage, and pepper (or salt) in a small bowl. Add the heated brandy to the herb oil and set it aside.
Remove the Chicken after 15 minutes, brush one side of each piece with herb mixture, and bake for another 15 minutes. Brush with herb mixture again and complete cooking in 10-12 minutes or until Chicken is done. When done, remove from oven, and cover Chicken with foil. Keep warm for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
Place Chicken on a serving platter and place any remaining herb mixture in a bowl; drizzle over Chicken. Serve with some rice or bread.
Use Chicken breast or thighs instead of the other two pieces to reduce the work.
Use a small bowl (or a mini-loaf pan) to broil your Chicken quickly.
Cognac and brandy are delicious with Chicken, but you can substitute the brandy with white wine if you want. Spanish Sherry is also friendly with this meal.
