The answer to the question is NO it isn't ...but first there's nothing on this chicken quarter. There was no oil, no mayonaise, no special sauce or no seasoning/salt and it was tap on it sounding crispy. I had left one of those bags of chicken quarters in the crisper of the fridge and forgot about it till it was a week or so after it's expiration. I used to throw out chicken like that but I forgot that dogs can still eat. I usually mix up some chicken with the old pooches food but didn't have much to put in it this morning and he wouldn't eat. That's why I broke out these expired quarters I had frozen just for the dogs.... free fuel for the 007 so it's getting grilled. Back to the chicken skin..Yea crispy as all get out, just flip skin side down for a while and the fats will render and turn crisp. For all those that grill try using something that will give you more distance between your charcoal fire then the skin can spend more time facing the direct heat with no black burning. Anyways that's the tip of the day! Oh the hush puppies were for me! Nice and crisp but moist inside. Yum!
