Crispy German Chicken Recipe (Hähnchenkeulen): The New Baked Chicken Recipe on the Block by Donna John
Hähnchenkeulen is a crispy German chicken recipe that has a flavorful sauce made with curry, paprika and other spices. This baked chicken was super easy to prepare, tender, crispy, juicy and packed with flavor.
When I first saw the finished product, I honesty thought I had burned it. But no! The seasoning blend darkens as it cooks, taking on a deep flavor. The taste was truly unique. I served it with hot sauerkraut with bacon and onions and crisp asparagus.
