  1. This looks great. One question though, should the legs be skinless? Thanks!

      They don’t need to be. I calculated the Points including the chicken skin of each drumstick.

  2. This look great and I cannot wait to try it! Question – should the skin be removed from the drumsticks? Also, I bet this would work with thighs as well for similar PP value. Plan to try in the next few days!
