Chicken Shawarma

chicken Jan 05, 2021

5.02 lbs of bone-in skin-on chicken thigh. After prepping I had:

  • Chicken Meat – 3 lbs
  • Skin/fat – 1 lb
  • Bones – 1 lb

The bones will go into a stock broth at a later date (into the freezer for now), and the skin will either be turned into shmaltz or eating nice and crispy like the Japenese do with Yakitori (into the freezer for now).
