Crispy German Chicken Recipe: Hähnchenkeulen Is the New Baked Chicken Recipe on the Block

Hähnchenkeulen is a crispy German chicken recipe with a flavorful sauce made with curry, paprika and other spices. This fried chicken was super easy to prepare, tender, crispy, juicy and packed with flavor.

When I first saw the finished product, I honestly thought I had burned it. But no! The spice mix darkens during cooking and takes on a deep flavor. The taste was really unique. I served it with hot sauerkraut with bacon and onions and crispy asparagus.
