Cooking with PJ Vadas: Crispy Chicken Skins

Crispy chicken skins


Farmer Angus outdoor chicken

Fresh thyme

Salt + Pepper



Remove the skin from the chicken (as much as you wish to serve) and cut into the desired size.

Scrape the fat off the back of the skin.

Lay the skins flat on a baking tray.

Season with salt + pepper and fresh thyme.

Place a 2nd baking tray on top of the skins to keep the skins flat.

Between the 2 trays, bake at 180°C for 30 minutes until crispy and golden brown.

Serve with any dip or chutney of your choice.
