Deviled Eggs with Roast Chicken Skin

Deviled Eggs with Roast Chicken Skin Recipe

Deviled eggs originated in Rome and were found all over central Europe by the nineteenth century. Toppings would vary, depending on the cuisine and produce of the country: The Russians topped a mayonnaise and egg mixture with caviar and potato, the Swedish used pickled herring and dill, and so on. We believe that deviled eggs are great in many guises, but this deviled eggs with roast chicken skin recipe is our favorite. It makes for some devilishly good eggs—and makes more crisp chicken skin than you will need. Then again, everyone needs extra crisp chicken skin.–Pitt Cue Co.

LC Wobbly In The Knees Note

Reread that last line of the headnote above. You know, the part pertaining to reveling in ample amounts of crisp chicken skin. The one that makes us go wobbly in the knees. It goes, “but then, everyone needs extra crisp chicken skin.” Words to live by.

  • 1. Halve the eggs lengthwise. Scoop the yolks into a bowl and place the whites on your work surface. Mix the yolks with the mayo, salt, and pepper and pass through a fine sieve.

Place the yolk mixture in a pastry bag or a large resealable bag with one corner snipped off and pipe the yolk mixture neatly into the egg whites. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

I am not generally a deviled egg kind of guy. That said, I absolutely LOVE these deviled eggs with roast chicken skin. The crisp chicken skin is AMAZING and really pushes these normally average hors d' oeuvres to the pinnacle of deviled eggs. I recommend not using new eggs as boiled eggs peel much more easily if they're a few days old. Be adventurous! Try different pastry tips when filling the egg whites.
