"Zip the Fat Off a Chicken". Before cooking, wash whole (broiler) chicken. Put your hand between the skin and breast to loosen the skin. Do the same for the back and top of the drumsticks. Grab the loosened skin and pull off to "zip the skin" off the chicken. Use a knife to trim off any skin from the legs that did not pull off. Wash hands after handling the chicken and before handling any other foods.
