Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Instead of the cut-up broiler-fryer, you also can make this recipe with 4 chicken breasts, skin removed.
  • It’s easy to remove the skin from larger pieces of chicken. However, skinning chicken wings and legs can be a little tricky. So you can either take off as much skin as possible or just leave it on these pieces.
  • Before serving, sprinkle this dish with chopped fresh cilantro or chopped green onions.
