I almost always cook chicken with the skin and bones, except for the few occasions I make a recipe with chicken supremes.

I am a minority I guess where I don't like chicken with skin. Growing up in India we never cooked chicken with the skin on. Perhaps that's the reason I still can't palate chicken with skin - fried, roasted or whatever. I will eat a roasted chicken but will get rid of the skin and then I have nothing but bland chicken which again I don't like.

I am used to tandoori type chicken or whole chicken where the skin is out (it's a painful process to skin it but I do it). I then marinate it with lime juice, ginger and other aromatics and leave it overnight. I normally prepare some type of sauce (thick yogurt with spices) or cilantro and cashewnut cream or some other type of tomato based sauce and pour it over the chicken. Off it goes in the oven and makes a very delectable chicken which is pretty moist.

If I'm frying, grilling or roasting, it's always skin-on but I use a lot of skinless chicken in other recipes/preparations.

I am cooking spanish food tonight and i want to know if there is an advantage to keep the skin on , will it make the chicken more moist and help create a sauce with the peppers and the onions that i am frying the chicken with.

nick.......cook it anyway that you like.........the end.......as you can see everyone has their personal prefs...........I make the most boring chicken breasts ever when I'm by myself........and I steam them in a fish poaching pan with their skins on but I remove the fat when I eat them or use the meat in a soup, sandwich, casserole, etc.........most people don't care.....they just appreciate being invited and hanging out with their host......
