I always thought chicken skin was so-so till I tired that lemon chicken that was posted on the NPR segment in a different thread (Hazan's lemon chicken).
I became addicted to chicken skin.
I find it easier to get crisp skin doing a whole chicken than doing pieces, but I read a trick somewhere that is fairly easy and works fairly well....
Spritz (like a spray bottle) the chicken skin with vinegar and then dry it off. Make sure to have the skin as dry as possible.
