I am planning to make this recipe, however I am wondering if the amount salt is correct. Seems like an awful lot of salt. Should it be teaspoons instead of tablespoons?

    Hi Sean – it is correct (the salt helps to dry the chicken skin out and make it crispy. But if you don’t like salty food, then you can definitely reduce the amount.
