At first, I wasn’t sure whether to recommend this to you for Day 3. I fear there are some of you who’ll dig Cracklin’ Chicken so much that you won’t make anything else for the rest of the month. But that’s not such a bad thing, right?
Cracklin’ Chicken’s fantastic with all sorts of flavor boosters—from the Sriracha Mayo in my cookbook to the Whole30-compliant Tessemae’s sauces that I’m giving away this week (have you entered my sweepstakes yet?). And when the month is over, you can even have it with Coconut Secret’s soy-free teriyaki sauce.
But c’mon: Cracklin’ Chicken is darn tasty all by its lonesome.
If you’ve got leftovers, (1) HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE? and (2) here’s the best way to reheat your Cracklin’ Chicken: lay the pieces skin-side down in a hot skillet for 1-2 minutes (or until the skin re-crisps) and then flip them over for another 1-2 minutes to heat through. Can’t wait? Just eat ’em cold.
Pro tip: When you’re buying the chicken, ask your butcher to remove the bones for you and reserve them for bone broth. I just recently learned that I can request this service—for free!—at all Whole Foods Markets, and it’s made my winner-winner-chicken-dinner prep even faster.
