Even if you’re one of those people who pick the skin off your chicken to feel a tad bit healthier, you have to admit it’s the tastiest part of the chicken.

Grits Fullerton has embraced the chicken skin and created a crispy dish called the Pollo Fundido, which will only be available at Oozefest in Santa Ana.

The Pollo Fundido takes the sweater off the chicken, fries it, and puts it alongside a dip made with gruyere, white cheddar and ground pickled pork belly.
