Uses for Chicken or Turkey skin?

Recipe calls for skinless chicken or turkey breasts. You skin what you have and are left with skin from free range pastured birds. Do you throw it away? If not, what do you do with it?

I think the question was for pastured birds which I'm assuming means they eat bugs not corn or soy feed. If true, does that mitigate the excess omega 6 concerns?

Is there any particular reason it has to be skinless? Usually that is just to cut the fat. Leave it on then eat it off. Yum!

Until a few months ago, I used to store the chicken skin in a zipped pouch in my refrigerator and when it was a large enough quantity, I used to cook it for my dog. But recently, my friend told me that since I used farm raised organic chicken for my paleo diet, it was healthy and she taught me to make delicious crisps with it. This stands out as one of my favorite appetizers today.

you could use it to induce an inflammatory response in your body due to intake of polyunsaturated fats

Amen to eating it. I'll fire up my oven a little hotter for the last 15 minutes or so of my baked turkey so the skin comes out all crispy, then peel it off, roll it up with a little sea salt and mop up the pan drippings with it. Blargh tasty!
