  1. I made them using skinless chicken thigh, and only drizzled oil instead on melting a layer of butter. Came out perfect! Those spice mixes were good and really spicy…

  2. disgusting. can just imagine all that chicken fat soaking into everything (WHY THE MELTED BUTTER ? YUK) and soft / non crispy chicken skin (because it’s protected by the breadcrumbs so will not be able to render down and get crispy). this is probably a LESS healthy alternative to frying actually.
