How many calories in chicken skin

chicken drumstickWhenever I pick up a rotisserie chicken, I remove the skin, even though it’s the tastiest part. The reason why we’re advised to remove the skin is because it’s mostly fat. If you’ve ever wondered how many calories you’re saving from removing the skin from a chicken breast, it’s 50 (1). If you eat four pieces of chicken breast meat with the skin, that’s an additional 200 calories; now, that’s a lot!
