Chicken cracklings are featured in different cuisines, including Dominican and Jewish. Ashkenazi Jews are known to make chicken cracklings as an alternative to bacon, which they cannot eat due to dietary restrictions on pork. They refer to chicken cracklings as "gribenes" and use either chicken or goose skin. Southern Jews add gribenes to jambalaya in place of shrimp. Dominican recipes for chicken crackles, or "chicharonnes de pollo," include kosher salt. The Dominican version also sets itself apart by having chefs marinate the chicken in a mixture of lemon juice, soy sauce, ginger and salt for at least two hours before frying.
