This is one of my absolute favorite collected recipes in the world. It has always been a great crowd pleaser whenever I have served it. The chicken is simply astounding! It is the only time I eat chicken skin - the crispy crunch with all the seasonings just cannot be duplicated. However, you can certainly remove the skin, marinade and skip the pan frying. Just place directly into the oven. I usually serve this dish with Chinese or Japanese vegetable fried rice.
