Soggy skin on braised chicken

dmjordan | Dec 11, 2010 02:01 PM

I think I've only made a braised chicken dish once and I have a question about the skin. I could make a meal out of crispy chicken skin, but of course after braising, the skin is anything but. I remember eating the skin and it was kind of flabby and gross. So my question is, are you supposed to eat the skin or remove it from the chicken? On the cooking show I'm watching now, the cook is eating the skin. I know there is no rule on how to eat, just want to know the general consensus. Thanks.
