Pirate Jenny,
I would have never thought to try the Braggs on popcorn. I love making popcorn with EVCO, kept hearing everyone always drooling over this and finally made it. I now understand what all of the hoopla was about!

Don't go crazy with it; it will make the popcorn soggy!
But it's so much more flavorful than plain salt--which doesn't stick on plain air-popped popcorn anyway. Not that I advocate eating popcorn without butter!!!
But on a DD...popcorn w/a little Braggs & nutritional yeast might be nice.

OMG! How do you make that?!!! :drool:

I know!!! Right!?!?!? It is best with homemade biscuits with real butter and then drown in gravy. It has been YEARS since I have had this and I can still taste it! Isn't that weird how that happens???

Hey, on UD here is a little treat! Not low carb, but goodness gracious! It's a southern thang!

Evil people! Today is a DD and I'm sitting at 498 calories on the nose so don't you dare drag pictures of chocolate gravy across my screen. My granny used to make it for me and it probably made me half the woman I am today (well that and fried chicken)

Omg you people are cruel. Its a DD This is supposed to be about chicken breasts and now I'm wondering how on earth chocolate gravy tastes on a biscuit! (curls up in the fetal position). Lucky for you (or maybe me) I'm headed to bed.

I POPEYES!

I like to thaw it in fridge, marinate in fat free italian dressing, place in a baking dish, pour over a can of marinara or herbed spaghetti sauce, sprinkle a little parm over and bake in the oven. Sometimes I add mushrooms.

I tell people I get fried chicken just to eat the crispy crunchy skin!

I get this. It's why I roast a turkey in November. Thanksgiving? Whatever. It's roasted turkey skin day. I'd eat the skin off the entire bird if my family wouldn't object.

I am the same way about the skin. We are going to Tokyo in August and just watched an Anthony Bourdain show where he was eating chicken skin on skewers in Japan. Just chicken skin.

(and yes, I had Popeye's today . . . )

Has anyone made "chicken chips"?

You take the skins, salt & season them, and bake them in the oven (or, I prefer to use my George Foreman grill) til they get crispy like potato chips.

The skin from thighs works really well IMO because it's almost a square shape.

I *ONLY* do this when I slow-cook thighs for a soup or to shred for Mexican food, cuz otherwise I fry or bake them with the skin on!!!

Another way to cook the skin is gribenes...

Omg I've been to one of those specialty Japanese tapas, and they have delicious flame skewers of chicken skin, liver, pork belly, crispy duck skin etc.

OMG, I've been wishing I could buy big bags of chicken skin (I mean, they sell skinless chicken, what do they do with all the skin?!!! I want it!!!) but I am embarrassed to ask at my local butcher. I go to an Asian market once every couple of months, maybe I'll ask there! I think they sell EVERY part of EVERY thing!!! There are bins of pig's ears, chicken feet, duck feet, duck tongues...

YES, THIS!!! I may have to start asking around too because the skin to meat ratio on chicken just isn't satisfactory to me. I want to fry/grill/bakemy own chicken skin.
