If you are a health nut that removes the chicken skin before cooking, go find another post to read. Besides that, hang your head in shame for missing out on something glorious. If you are the type of person that savours every crispy bite of the skin when you make fried chicken, let me tell you about a dish you must try: the “Nashville Hot” Fried Chicken Skins at Juniper.
These chicken skins are fantastic! It’s the best part about eating fried chicken. They are salty and slightly spicy, and the strawberry buttermilk adds sweetness. I could eat these all night. In my opinion they are one of the best bar snacks PERIOD.
I realize this is a short post, but this was something that more people should be talking about. I tried these on my third trip to Juniper and this will ensure that I visit more frequently. I may need to get baseline readings on my cholesterol, because I’m sure it’s going to be climbing with this new addiction.
Dive 2 Five Scale: 3. Juniper is slightly off the beaten path in the CWE. It has a lively atmosphere even though it is not on the busier Euclid Ave. I have been a fan of the chef since my first trips to Entre Underground events and he continues to provide great fare to his patrons.
