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.
