    How does one prepare and cook chicken's feet?

    I was grocery shopping yesterday and I came across a package of chicken's feet (for less than $1 per pound), so, I was really tempted in purchasing and trying them, since I have never done so before.

    Does anyone know how to prepare and cook good chicken feet?

      You are very welcome. This recipe is quite spicy hot, so if that's not to your taste, just put a little less chilli in there! Chicken's feet are tasty and nutritious. You can also add the feet to soups and casseroles to help make a flavorful stock.

    Wow, you have some really good recipe ideas here. In Peru, chicken feet are generally added to chicken soup. The tips of the toes are first cut off and the outer layer of skin is peeled off. They say the collagen in chicken feet is good for the joints and skin. I've even heard that chicken fit will make you look younger! I hope you enjoy them.

    here in the Philippines, we serve that adobo style. Beer drinkers love to eat them while drinking especially if it's spicy. PULUTAN, in Filipino term. We also mix them in a rice porridge. Just clean the chicken feet. Do you know how? Boil the chicken feet and if it's tender, remove them and then set aside. Now, the porridge. Boil the rice in the chicken broth( where you boil the chicken feet). If the porridge is cook, put some salt and pepper, depends on your taste and then put the chicken feet. Top it with green leeks.

    Here in Thailand they find their way into all manner of soups. They obviously add some flavour to the stock. At first, i thought they were removed before serving but it turns out they are an integral part of a lot of broth based meals. Chicken feet can also be found served as a street snack. Deep fried in a thin flour batter, they are very popular.
