An example would be a 3.5-ounce serving of a baked chicken breast without the chicken skin contains about 165 calories and about 3.6 grams of fat, of which one gram is saturated fat. Whereas eating the same amount of chicken breast recipe with the chicken skin increases the calorie count to about 197 calories and about 7.8 grams of fat, of which 2.2 grams of the fat are saturated, so it's not a huge difference, but a bit of a difference.

The same amount of chicken breast that has the skin left on contains less protein with about 29 grams; this is because skin-on chicken breast typically contains bone, too.
