Yakitori-style Crispy Chicken Skin

Yakitori-style Crispy Chicken Skin

Just fry the chicken skin until crispy and mix with the sauce for this simple dish. Even though I made it as a snack to go with drinking, now I serve it to my kids as an accompaniment with rice.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chicken skin
Sukiyaki sauce (store-bought)
2 teaspoons
a pinch


1. Before heating the frying pan, place the chicken skin side down into the pan. Pan-fry on low heat until nicely browned, without moving them around.
2. When the skin side has browned, flip over and pan-fry while wiping away rendered oil.
3. When both sides have browned, temporarily remove from the pan. Cut into bite-sized pieces and then return to the pan. Add the sugar and sukiyaki sauce, turn on the heat, and simmer to blend the flavors.
4. Once it's shiny, it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

Honestly, I never used to enjoy chicken skins, so when I bought chicken breasts and boiled or made nuggets, I always removed and threw away the skins. But I kept thinking how wasteful that was so I came up with this recipe. Now I love crispy, crunchy chicken skins.
