Author Notes: 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

Serves: 2

  • chicken skin
  • flaky sea salt, for finishing
  1. Preheat oven to 375. Line a sheet pan with parchment. Place chicken skin on the parchment. Put another piece of parchment on top of the skin, and a second sheet pan on top. Place in the oven, weighted down with a heavy pot, and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from pan, drain on paper towels, and sprinkle with flaky sea salt.
