my aunt's hungarian MIL told my aunt she HAD to make chicken soup for her son (my aunt's husband) this way: go to buthcher shop pick chicken (cluck to pluck 1 minute flat!!), place veggies, chicken beeks, feet and all while still warm into pot, cover with water salt boil for hours and hours. strain out veggies and throw them away. place beeks, feet and all chicken in a serving bowl on table. boil pasta flakes and place in individual bowls pour broth over pasta. everyone adds their own chicken to bowl. not my cup of tea or soup!! i went with my aunt to the poultry shop when i was 6 yrs old to young to understand why the pretty birdie went in the back and yelled. i also on that same day made the mistake to disobey my aunt when she said not to left the lid on pot on the stove. which i of course proceded not to heed ...... a head and foot popped up i let the heavy enameled cast iron lid drop and went screaming down the celler and didn't come out from under the stairs till my uncle got home a coxed me out!! i then told my mom i never wanted to go to aunties house on chicken soup day again!!

Chicken feet is a great delicacy. I'm Asian and was brought up to eat chicken feet. A Chinese Dr told me that the high collagen in chicken feet is good for us to build back the soft tissues between our joints. There are many ways of cooking them. I just cook it in the simplest way. Wash them well. Cut off the claws. Chop some garlic. Pan fry them til fragrant. Add in the chicken feet. Add soya sauce, chili sauce, sugar, water, sesame oil and some wine and let it cook til soft. Adjust the taste.

I am not a picky eater (I have eaten octopus that was still moving) but I cant get over the texture of chicken feet. I tried them a couple of times in Korea but just did not like the texture. But it sounds like they would be great for making chiken soup.

chicken feet

I am new to the website, but here goes. I grew up mostly on a farm, where the saying was that you ate everything on a hog, except the oink. I guess the same went for the chicken. My sister-in-law used to ask me how I could eat such a thing, to her reply: I just chew in between their little toes. I never thought anything about eating them as a kid, that's just the way it was done.

For those who still think eating chicken is a nightmare and still consider trying it, maybe you can try a different way of cooking it. Maybe chop it up into smaller pieces so that it looks better. If you deep fry it first, then soak it in a basin of cold water before cooking, it gives you a completely different texture which is very nice. For me, deep frying it is quite a hassle. Be careful of the hot oil.
