To remove the skin is pinching calories!
If you are a calorie counter, which I don’t recommend in the long run beyond determining relatively how much or little you need to eat in order to meet a particular fitness goal, the act of removing your chicken skin would be rendered quite moot as you would only be taking away, fifty calories (in regards to a 12 oz. chicken breast).
Calories are not your enemy. When you are looking at your body in regards to its metabolism, it isn’t the amount of calories that you are necessarily putting into your body that make the difference, but the quality and rate of activity that you balance with it.
Chicken skin can provide the flavor you need without anything extra!
Chicken skin is left on during the cooking process anyway in order to produce moist chicken. Therefore, it only makes sense that you would season the skin before-hand in order to infuse flavor into said chicken.
Eating the flavorful, seasoned skin will prevent you from adding too much excess salt or make you crave sauces that are high in synthetic sugars and processed syrups.
