Trimming with kitchen scissors

I was recently making the Grilled Five-Spice Chicken Thighs from Fine Cooking‘s #87, and instead of using a knife to trim the thighs, or trying to pull off the slippery fat with my fingers, I used my kitchen scissors. They worked perfectly, gripping and cutting the chicken with ease; scissors would also work for trimming meat and fish.
