If I could buy chicken skin on it's own and roast it, I would.
A man after my own heart We save chicken skin from braising chicken and crisp it in the toaster oven to have as a little snack with a nice sprinkle of sea salt. So good

Good idea GG.

Stirling doesn't like the skin. Mwahaha, more for me.

I do that with the skin when I simmer chicken parts for a chicken soup. After it is cooked, I take it out of the stock and peel the skin off and crisp it up. Anytime I had a couple of chickens in the oven roasting, the kids were right there when they came out of the oven. Who was going to get the skin was always a battle.

I had to guard those chickens with my life to make sure they got to the table with most of the skin on.
