  • Black peppert1 teaspoon

  • Paprikat1 teaspoon

  • Dried thymet1/2 teaspoon

  • Garlic powdert1/2 teaspoon

  • Onion powdert1/2 teaspoon

  • Olive oilt2 tablespoons

  • Potatoes (optional)t4-6 medium-sized, quartered

  • Carrots (optional)t4-6, peeled and cut into chunks

  • Onions (optional)t2, quartered

  • Fresh thyme or rosemary sprigs (optional) for garnish


  • Commence the Culinary Artistry
  • Initiate our gastronomic masterpiece by preheating your oven to a scorching 425°F (220°C). Ensure the oven rack graces the central position.
  • Prepare the Fowl
  • Commence with a thorough cleansing of the whole avian, both inside and out. Subsequently, employ paper towels to pat it meticulously dry. This meticulous ritual is instrumental in the quest for achieving a delectably crisp integument. Proceed to place the avian specimen upon a roasting receptacle or a commodious, heat-resistant vessel.
  • Season the Poultry
  • In a petite receptacle, amalgamate a harmonious blend of salt, ebony pepper, paprika, desiccated thyme, garlic powder, and onion powder. Proceed to administer an even distribution of olive oil upon the avian, followed by a liberal application of the aforementioned spice concoction, ensuring comprehensive coverage both internally and externally.
  • Optional Botanical Companions
  • Should your gastronomic predilections veer toward the inclusion of roasted flora alongside the main attraction, arrange quartered tubers, carrots, and onions symmetrically around the avian within the roasting vessel. Proceed to anoint them with a modest drizzle of olive oil and anoint them with a judicious sprinkling of salt and pepper.
  • Roasting of the Fowl
  • Position the roasting vessel within the preheated oven and embark upon a roasting odyssey that spans approximately one hour and fifteen minutes. The culmination of this journey occurs when the avian’s innermost temperature attains a harmonious 165°F (74°C), and its exterior boasts an exquisite crispness, illuminated by a resplendent golden hue. If botanical companions accompany the avian, they should possess tenderness and bear a subtle caramelization.
  • Respite and Presentation
  • Gently extract the roasting vessel from the oven and bestow upon the avian a well-earned respite of ten to fifteen minutes prior to the ceremonial carving. This interval facilitates the even redistribution of succulent juices, preserving the avian’s innate juiciness.
  • Adornment and Epicurean Revelry
  • Ornament your Knusprige Brathähnchen with sprigs of fresh thyme or rosemary to bestow upon it an aromatic opulence. Proceed with the ceremonial carving of the avian, and, if your palate so desires, accompany it with the roasted flora. Embark upon the indulgence of this quintessential German masterpiece!
