Chinks or Chicken Skin Chicharon is a type of Filipino street food prepared with rendered chicken skin and deep fried to crispy golden brown state.



  • 1 kg Chicken Skin, sliced into roughly 3×3 inch squares
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1/4 cup white cane vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a non stick pot, add chicken skin, salt, vinegar and pepper.
  2. Now pour enough water just enough to cover the chicken skin.
  3. Bring to a rapid boil and do not cover the pot, once the liquid have evaporated turn the heat to medium and let the skin extract its oil.
  4. Once oil comes out give it a light mix just to make sure that skin does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
  5. Now fry the skin on its own oil until crispy.
  6. Drain, let it cool, serve and enjoy with ice cold beer
