Half chicken with French fries – a German cuisine recipe. Oddly enough, but this is street food, a kind of fast food. However, without this fast food it is impossible to imagine Oktoberefest. Everyone represents a holiday with various sausages, of course they are also there, but no one will refuse half of the chicken. The recipe is very simple and can be easily cook at home. To keep the potatoes crisp, fry them in two passes.
For a half chicken with deep-fried potatoes recipe, chop the herbs and mix with grated garlic, 3.5 tbsp paprika, honey and lemon juice. Cut the chicken lengthwise into two halves, grease with prepared marinade, wrap with foil and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Chicken halves can be laid out directly on a baking sheet, covered with a bag or stretch wrap and then refrigerated.
While the chicken is marinated, you can do potatoes. It should be peeled and cut into cubes with sides of 1 cm. Pour vegetable oil into a deep frying pan, at least 5 cm. When the oil warms up, add prepared potatoes and fry until white. This will take about 8 minutes. Then remove the potatoes with a slotted spoon and drain off the excess oil.
Heat the oil and add the fried potatoes 20 minutes before the chicken has finished cooking. Fry potatoes for 5-7 minutes until golden brown. Mix the remaining paprika with salt and sprinkle with the mixture over the finished potatoes. Double frying the potatoes makes them crisp even after they have cooled slightly. Serve half chicken and fries with sauce.
