Greek Fried Chicken

I went to a Greek owned restaurant, that served fried chicken. It was breaded in bread crumbs and fried. Anyone, add anything else??? Don't know about what spices or exactly how to fry it. I didn't taste oregano or lemon in it. Thanks for your help !!!!

This is one of the better Greek restaurants around us but they don't say how they make their chicken.
Tarpon Springs is a large Greek community near here. Maybe if you emailed them and asked advise.

There is a Greek seasoning called Cavender's that is very good on poultry. You should be able to find it at your local grocery store.

I lived on the island of Crete for just over a year and had great fried chicken (as well as seafood and lamb) Many seasoned with a blend of oregano, dried lemon and garlic. The majority of the time the chicken was marinated in a yogurt marinade and then I loved eating it with fried potatoes and tatziki and a squeeze of lemon or lime. It was always fried in an olive oil blend. When I would travel the Greek mainland I can't recall having fried chicken. I have had Cavender's Greek seasoning, but it seems to be loaded with msg.

The regular Cavender's has a very small amount of MSG ---- The Salt Free version has none!!
