Diva Tasting: Bavarian Chicken…

Crispy Bavarian Chicken Serves 6

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

½ Teaspoon Caraway Seeds

½ Teaspoon Dried Sage

¼ Teaspoon Fennel Seeds

¼ Teaspoon Coriander Seeds

¼ Teaspoon Dried Rosemary

2 Tablespoons Paprika

2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder

2 Teaspoons All-Purpose Flour

1 Teaspoon Onion Powder

5 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil

1 (4 Pound) Broiler-Fryer Chicken, Cut In Half Lengthwise


Step 1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

Step 2

In a spice grinder or mortar, combine kosher salt, caraway seeds, sage, fennel, coriander, and rosemary. Grind to a coarse powder. Transfer spice mixture to a bowl and stir in paprika, garlic powder, flour, and onion powder; mix in vegetable oil to make a smooth paste.

Step 3

Pat chicken halves dry with paper towels and tuck wing tips up behind the back. Brush spice paste onto chicken halves, coating both sides, taking care to season under wings and legs. Place chicken halves in baking dish or roasting pan with skin sides up, leaving space around chicken so halves aren’t touching.

Step 4

Roast until temperature reaches 165 degrees. About 1 hour. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with garlic mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus and dinner rolls.
