Eating chicken skin may be a little sinful but not all that bad. There is fat in it, but it is good unsaturated fat. Lowered blood pressure and cholesterol are perks of munching on crispy golden brown skin. Chicken skin has oleic acid too (like olive oil) that inhibits cardiac, inflammatory, and autoimmune diseases. It is not high in calories so removing it won’t help much in your calorie-cutting plans.
