NOTE: Although I put this in sauces, it's really a spice blend...need a catagory for that. When I lived in Germany, I was a block from the local butcher or metzergei and they carried this Pikante Gefluegel or what I personally call, "Chicken Paprika." The little fast food trailers called "imbiss" that roasted up scores of chicken you could buy half or whole for a pittance used this type of blend. It was awesome. When I got ready to move home, I knew I wouldn't be able to find this exact blend, so with a dictionary, I wrote down all the ingredients that weren't "chemicals" and came up with this recipe. My cousin is such a fan that I always make up jars for her. She uses it on everything. It is great on chicken, potatoes, as a sprinkle for potato salad in place of regular paprika, it's great on pork and I even add it to flour when dredging chicken for fried chicken. Guten Appetit!
