ISO Ideas

I have an idea for what could be an exceptional appetizer, but need help with the idea. Let me preface with the fact that chicken skin, fried in a dry pan until the fat is rendered, to a golden, crispy brown, and lightly salted, and drained on paper towels, is one of most wonderful flavors around. Now, envision that yummy, crispy skin wrapped around something, maybe lightly crispy, that would compliment the chicken skin, secured with a toothpick, and deep fried, then salted to make a little ball of crunchy goodness filled with something great.

I thought of cream cheese made into little balls, laced with chives, and garlic, frozen, wrapped, then deep fried. I'm not sure how well that would work as the cheese would get all melted. Would the skin hold its shape, or remain crispy? What other fillings could eb put into the skin, maybe some bread stuffing, or a little ball of pork sausage. I need ideas.

I bielive that we could put our minds together and create and exceptional appetizer with this wrapped chicken skin theme.

How about wrapping the partially cooked skin (still pliable but with the fat rendered) around a marinated mushroom then finish on the grill to crisp the skin and add a bit of smoke. The crispy fattiness of the skin would be complimented by the vinegary astringency of the mushroom.

That's a great idea. I thought mushrooms, but marinated mushrooms would be better. I'm wondering what some of the olives would taste like now as well. Thanks.

Everyone else, keep the ideas coming.

i was thinking of something along the lines of an abt.

after you make the schmaltz, the chicken skin would replace the bacon.

you could call it an atomic ostrich turd.

I don't do much deep frying, but I could see wrapping chicken skin around other marinated veggies, like artichoke hearts and roasted red peppers, and then broiling or roasting at high heat till crispy. And maybe add a seasoned crouton to the middle of the stuffing for another layer of crunch and flavor.

i've had a very good appetizer of bacon wrapped around a shrimp and a piece of water chestnut.
i'm not sure if that would work with chicken skin, but it's worth a try. although, i would pan fry rather than deep fry it. same thing for wrapping a scallop.

taking the idea of the cream cheese...
what about a jalapeno popper? rather than using bacon,
wrap the popper in chicken skin?
My mouth just flooded to overload
that sounds so awesome, I love crispy chicken skin!

I would go with one of the following for me;
a tiny chunk of black pudding or Haggis or chorizo sausage.
A pineapple chunk or a ready-to-eat preserved apricot
