Its easier to take the skin off when its cooked so I say leave it on when cooking and take it off after :) x

Cheers Sarah - just couldn't remember if that was allowed. It would be MUCH easier.

You can do that? I've been taking it off before cooking thinking that the fat from the skin would go into the chicken!

I always just cooked in it foil, and basted it with the juices.... but leaving the skin on would much easier!

So is it the same for things like drumsticks? because that was a real pain to remove the skin when I did tea last night!

I'm so pleased that I wasn't the only one to not know the answer on this one. Not such a silly question after all!!

Thanks everyone x

I usually cook it with the skin on, take the skin off and throw it in the bin - then squirt it with washing up liquid!

I usually cook the chicken with skin on then stip it after cooking and pop it in my mouth, then wonder why I haven't lost well at weigh in. ;)

Good idea - it is a bit of a temptation isn't it!

I have to say, I'm dreading christmas, because I am the only one who likes the skin in this house, so I used to have ALL the skin off a large turkey (9kg):eek: but it was sooo goood! Maybe i'll just buy turkey breasts and be done with it:8855: Temptation gone.
