Do you ever peel the skin off of your chicken when you clean it?

My grandmother does for health reasons. I hardly peel the skin off of the chicken, because I hardly buy it like this. If I have to, it will be small amounts...

I trim off the excess fat on my chicken, but I do not peel the skin off of it. I actually rarely buy chicken with skin still on it. I usually buy boneless skinless.

Yes boneless will be correct.. I trim the fat off as well. I guess that is what I meant to say, instead of the skin..

If you properly rinse and then cook your chicken then there is no need to take the skin off. My husband and oldest daughter think the skin is the best part, lol.

Yes, I think that the best part on the chicken as well. But before you wash it, there will need to be some peeling to do. The type of skin that I am talking about is the extra pert of the chicken... I guess it would be called fat.... My bad...

Hi there cream! I wish I have the same self-discipline when it comes to food. I rarely prepare the food which my husband usually does and he doesn't take the skin off either. I never asked him to do so too.

I do sometimes peel off the skin off the chicken and bin it before I clean it. I have been told that the skin is vert fatting and if its in a cassrole my children don't really like the skin. If I am roasting the chicken I clean the chicken with the skin on as the children and husband like the skin as it goes nice and crispy. They also like it if i put seasonings on te skin.
