Rendered Chicken Fat

Use the rendered fat to cook your eggs in it or fry meats like chicken strips. Store fat in a glass jar in the fridge.

INGREDIENTS
  • Skin from 1 whole chicken

DIRECTIONS

1

Remove skin off the chicken and cut it into small to medium pieces.
2

Preheat a pan on medium heat and add pieces when warm.
3

Give it a few good stirs and render fat until all the pieces of skin are nice and brown. It should take from 10-15 minutes at least.
4

Remove cracklings and place them on a plate lined with napkins or paper towel.
5

Place cracklings on it and if you are a foodie that enjoys specialties like this, sprinkle some salt and pepper (paprika if available) on it and consume with thin slices of red onions on a toast.
