Roasted Chicken Skins

This roasted chicken skin recipe makes a great snack and you also have no waste when you’re using the meat for a different recipe.  The drier the chicken skin, the better.  Take the skin off the meat by pulling with a thick paper towel.  Pat the skin dry or put in refrigerator for an hour if you have time. Thigh and breast skin are the largest pieces and lay the flattest.  Drums are smaller. It’s a simple flavorful snack that’s finger lickin’ good.
