crispy chicken skin....
Posted 25 August 2011 - 07:12 PM
so i have a very tasty marinade recipe for drum sticks.
i broiled them (don't have a grill) for a very long time, turning every now & again & even though the marinade glazed up a bit, the skin was still pretty slimy-like.
is there some sort of easy method to crispy skin when cooking marinated chicken legs?

i don't marinade them raw. i grill them and then toss them in the marinade like a glaze.
do you think if i dry the raw legs real well, broil them, then toss in the marinade it would work?

That's what I do when I make Duck Confit to crisp up the skin before serving.

i dried them, pan fried them, then baked them for a while, tossed them w/ the marinade, then put them back in on broil. what a long process, but it made for a pretty fun project being stuck in the house alllll day.
i couldn't get all the skin crispy, but i did a pretty good job overall.
i was thinking of trying to just bake them low & slow next time the mta shuts down & i'm a prisoner in my own home
thanks for all the pro tips!
