eat chicken skin?
« on: December 29, 2019, 06:31:18 am »
I've been eating chicken raw and like it a lot - this is pastured (not free range) chicken from a small farm, bought at the health food store frozen.

I like the leg/thigh combo.  I've been tearing off the skin because I thought that I read somewhere not to eat the skin.  But can't remember where or why.  I think it may have been Aagonus who said that somewhere.  Anyway, last night I cooked up the skin bits with beef liver and onions and it was great.

Just wanted some opinions or experience with eating the chicken skin raw.  It does seem appetizing to me.

Thanks!

"AV says not to eat it but Paul Lundkvist, a bodybuilder/personal trainer living in Stockholm says the chicken skin and fat are the tastiest part to him, and he eats them first" - according to Raw Kyle in a previous entry.    Others have said it tastes pretty amazing with all the fat!   Glad you have tried Raw Chicken and find you like the distinct taste and flavor.     

Many won't try Raw Chicken or Raw Pork, and are missing out on some tasty treats.    If you don't try it how will you know if you like it?

OK thanks, I'm still wondering what AV's logic was. 

Yea, actually I checked the chicken and it's not pastured, it's organic free range, but from a small farm so I think it's pretty clean. 

I also really enjoy ground turkey, pastured and frozen from the same health food store.  It's one of my favorites.

I don't eat any pig.  I stopped eating it about a year ago, when I was eating it cooked, it seemed to just slow me down and I felt better without it.  I still feel that there are too many reasons not to eat it with all of the history of some religions saying to stay away from it and the weird parasites associated with it.

Suggest looking at following on this Forum:
Digestibility of raw animal skins
Chicken pluck
The Butcher
AV may have felt skin was indigestible or, if plucking involved dipping in bleach solution to remove feathers in industrial production of chickens, undesirable.
Have eaten Raw Chicken, Raw Turkey and Raw Duck for a really 'fowl' Christmas, and had both Chicken and Pork from local supermarkets.   Most cooked meats can prove tougher than raw versions, if cooked badly.

Thanks for the information.

I tried to eat the chicken skin and it was just way too tough and chewy, impossible.  So I guess it really softens up when cooked.

Anyway, I'm just going to give it to my dog from now on, he just swallows it.

Could be left to get high and become softer over time?    Never tried this with chicken skin on its own.
