Prune and Walnut Stuffed Chicken Skin

So here is my first attempt to make a chicken skin stuffed with ground chicken meat, walnuts, prunes and some other ingredients. I’ve got a recipe for a friend of mine and had to try.

It is a bit tricky game to get chicken out of its skin w/o damaging the skin, but I managed it (and prepared step-by-step instructions with photos along the way).

The only hiccup I had on the way was with bacon. The smoked bacon I used had very powerful and distinctive taste, and it mostly took over the taste of other ingredients. So for this recipe I suggest to use smaller amount of non-smoked bacon, or replace it with ground pork instead.

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: rinse prunes with hot water and drain, remove pits if needed; rinse chicken outside and inside, pat it dry with paper towel; rinse parsley:
