    Flour under the skin? That sounds like a recipe for glue.

    What happened to the stuff under the skin?

    I've cleaned the inside of my tank at some of the places I've lived.
    Sometimes it gets really mucky in there. Sometimes not. Not sure what
    causes it.

    It is probably mostly particles of dirt from your water supply. Municipal water
    is pretty clean, but there is still some stuff that gets through. I get water
    from my well and the soil here is sandy loam, so there is a brownish sediment
    that builds up rather quickly. Ever month or so I stir it up and give a few
    flushes to purge it from the tank.

    There is a scum that builds up in there, especially if that
    toilet doesn't get used often. Bacteria in the air get in there
    and breed, and can get slimey. Many toilet tanks have green
    stains inside the porcelain tanks from mildew and such.

    I still don't see that this has to do with chicken legs ;-)

    It added to the nice, crispy, chewy breading. I think the key is to use more
    flour mix than I have in the past, and to make sure the pieces are dry on
    the outside before you put them in the oil. They were more "oven-fried"
    than baked. Had I baked them at a lower initial temp, it would have been
    like glue.

    Wasn't that a word game we used to play?

    Maybe you should just go away until you learn to play nice and maybe spell a
    little better.

    I happen to like chicken legs, and think they are well worth the trouble.
