 I just stole your page to my bookmarks! I think in academia they just refer to that as "researching"
 I seem to recall it.. in a far and distant land..
I think to be fair to @Pepper Grind almost every culinary school I've seen through friends still puts some focus on the idea of inedible garnishes as part of the business of presenting food for things like banquets, weddings, etc. It is very much alive and well in those settings but I can agree with @Koukouvagia that on an individual diners plate ornate inedible garnishes have gone out of style.   A while back @petalsandcoco posted a nifty edible potato garnish you would...
Regarding taking the skin off, depending on the style of cooking it can be ok but as KK points out, it is very easy to turn that outer layer into chicken jerky. If you were planning to roast these in the oven, I would consider wrapping them in foil. In the last 5 or 10 minutes you can open the foil and baste some of the residual marinade inside the foil on them to allow it to tighten up on the meat.

My buddy did a "beer can" chicken on the grill smoked with a little applewood, it is unbelievable how moist the chicken turns out this way. Roasted corn on the cob, and jalapeno skillet baked corn bread.
What about .. what you had for breakfast? I'm still watching what I eat but that doesn't mean I can't have a little fun.
