Quick Tip:

Salt to Meat Ratio
Depending on who you talk to you or which web site you visit, you'll get a different answer regarding how much salt to add to meat. Based on research and my own experience, around 3/4 of a teaspoon of table salt or sea salt per pound of meat works well in most situations. I have also used as much as 1 teaspoon per pound depending on the recipe. You really need to understand your likes and your recipe to determine the best amount of salt. It's also important to factor in the type and brand of salt. Most table and sea salt are approximately the same. For example, table salt is fine so it is tightly packed while kosher salt tends to have irregular crystal shapes leading to less sodium per measurement. Even among the varieties of kosher salt there are vast differences so be warned!

Chicken Skin Chips Friday, October 23, 2015
Chicken Skin Chips

One day I was removing the skin from some chicken thighs to add to a soup. I was just about to throw it away when I remembered an article in bon appétit about frying chicken skins, so I gave it a try. Wow... are they sinfully good. I can't believe I've been throwing them away all these years.

Chicken Skin Chips

Lay down a sheet of parchment paper on a Jelly Roll Pan. Lay your chicken skins flat and as close to each other since they are going to shrink dramatically. Think of those shrinky dinks from your childhood. Lightly salt and pepper and cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Chicken Skin Chips

Cool the skins on paper towels to remove the excess oil. Add some lime and Sriracha sauce, and you have an easy appetizer your family or guests will talk about for a long time.


Ingredients: Serves: 8

Chicken Chips
  8 Each Skin from Chicken Thighs (cut into squares)
  1 Sheet Parchment Paper
  1 To Taste Salt and Pepper (Fresh Ground)
  1 Each Lime (Cut into Wedges)
  1 Bottle Sriracha

Steps: Prep Time: 1 hour

Preheat Oven
Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahreheit.
Assemble Pan
Lay one sheet of parchment paper on a jelly roll pan. Lay your skins on the parchment and lightly salt and pepper.
Bake for 45 minutes to an hour. Cool on paper towels to remove excess oil.
Garnish with lime and/or Sriracha sauce or just eat straight out of the oven.

  Are you friends with Paula Dean? Seriously...... foodies fall into two categories...... those who like deep fried fat and not. Your photo of your chicken skin masterpiece makes this dish look so appealing. I especially like the look of the lime wedge and the coarse pepper grindings which add to the interest.

I do love my coarse ground pepper! It's like a little spicy surprise in every bite :)
