Crackling Chicken
Recipe Type: Main
This inexpensive, delicious chicken is simple comfort food at its best. Fry until golden brown and delicious. Adapted from
  • Chicken thighs with skins on, bones removed with either knife or kitchen shears
  • seasalt
  • Spicerub of your choice, (I used my Mexican spicerub)
  • coconut oil or ghee for baking
  1. Remove the bone from the chicken, lay them on a flat surface and pound them to be equally flat all over. Pat dry with kitchen paper
  2. Skin side up season with seasalt
  3. Heat the oil in a non stick fryin pan and once hot, put the chicken in with the skin side down and leave to cook undisturbed for about 7-10 minutes. Check in between if they are already golden.
  4. In the meantime season the meatside with your spices of choice
  5. Once the skin side is nice and golden, turn around and bake the other side until the chicken is cooked through. Take out of the pan and leave to rest for about five minutes before cutting.
