Copycat Texas Roadhouse Herb Crusted Chicken

​What are some of your favorite restaurants to visit? My husband isn’t one for “chain restaurants” but I like them for when we take the kids out for dinner.

They always have something for everyone and the prices are very reasonable.

Even though it’s fun to go out, it can get expensive and sometimes the kids just don’t want to cooperate. Or someone else’s kids don’t and it gets loud.

Well, skip all that hassle and make dinner at home for a fraction of the cost and you can do it in your pajamas!

One of my favorite dishes is the herb crusted chicken. We always have chicken in the freezer and it’s something that the whole family will eat too. Or most of the time, LOL.

How to Make Texas Roadhouse Herb-Crusted Chicken Recipe

First: In a medium bowl, combine all the herbs. Place the chicken breasts in a zip top bag and squeeze the air out.

Second: Using a mallet, pound the chicken to flatten. Do this in batches if need be. Season the chicken on both sides with the herb mixture.

Third: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken on both sides then turn the temperature down to medium low. About 2-3 minutes per side.

Fourth: Continue cooking until the internal temperature is 165F. Remove and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Garnish with a squeeze of lemon juice.

How long does it last?

Store any leftovers in an airtight container, in the refrigerator, for up to 3-4 days. Reheat in the oven or on the stove top until heated through.

What to Serve with Herb Crusted Chicken

Some of my favorite healthy sides are easy options like sautéed green beans, roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a simple side salad.

Best Skillet to Use

I recommend using a large nonstick skillet, or cast iron skillet, to cook the chicken. Make sure the skillet is big enough to lay the chicken flat without overcrowding.

You can also bake this recipe. I like to sear my chicken on the stove top to get the golden brown color. Then I transfer them to a shallow dish and bake at 350 degrees f until cooked through.

Try making these in the air fryer too. It’s my new favorite way to make chicken.

​Tips for No Leftovers

  • Substitute the boneless chicken breasts for chicken tenders or chicken thighs.
  • Pound the chicken with a meat mallet to get the chicken to even thickness. Do this between two pieces of plastic wrap or in a plastic bag.
  • If using fresh herbs, use double the amount.
  • Generously season the chicken on both sides.
  • Heat the oil before adding the chicken.
  • Depending on how large the skillet is you might need to cook the chicken in batches.
  • Use a meat thermometer to check the chicken for doneness (165F). Time may vary depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts.
  • Rest the chicken for a few minutes before cutting to keep the juices from running out.
