Cracklins are the perfect savory movie snack and a great way to use leftover skin, for those of you who break down whole birds for skinless breast or thigh preparations. Crisp and chickeny with a bit of salt, they'll remind of your favorite roast chicken but without making a meal of it. They take little time in the oven, and prep is simple. Make sure to save the fat that renders out for later cooking. —adashofbitters
