Skinned chicken?

I have a fricassee recipe that calls for "3 lbs. chicken pieces, skinned." I would think that "skinned" means I should remove the skin (like "pitted" means to remove the pits), but if read another way, it could mean the opposite of skinless (thus, keeping the skin on). Can anyone help? Thanks in advance!

    1. Remove the skin.
      English is a very strange language.

      1. Correct, the skin should be removed.

        This is really the fault of the recipe writer... the item should be listed as "skinless" or "with the skin removed." That's why you see the term boneless, skinless chicken ____ in the grocery store, not "skinned."
