2. Seasoning:

  1. In a small bowl, mix salt, black pepper, paprika, dried thyme, and dried rosemary.
  2. Sprinkle and rub this mixture all over the chicken, both inside and out.

3. Stuffing:

4. Roasting:

  1.  To maintain the shape of the chicken, tie its legs together with kitchen twine.
  2. Put the chicken in a roasting pan on a roasting rack.
  3. Pour the chicken broth into the bottom of the pan to keep the chicken moist.
  4.  Roast the chicken in the preheated oven for about 1.5 to 2 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) when measured in the thickest part of the thigh.

5. Basting:

Juices from the pan's bottom will be used to baste the chicken every 30 minutes. This will add flavor and keep the meat tender.

6. Crispy Finish:

For a crispy skin, increase the oven temperature to 425°F (220°C) for the last 15-20 minutes of roasting. Keep a close eye to prevent over browning.

7. Resting and Serving:

  1. After cooking, take the chicken out of the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before cutting.
  2. Serve your succulent German Roast Chicken with the flavorful pan juices, alongside traditional sides like potato dumplings and sauerkraut.
