Chickenfeet....

Anyone like these things? There are a few Chinese places around here that serve them. One in particular is quite spectacular.

Garlic and soy gelatinous goodness!!

And all the Chinese waitresses get all delighted when an Anglo orders them.

I see chicken feet in the markets here, but have never seen them served, so I don't know how they are prepared. Anyone?

Recipezaar has a pretty good looking recipe.

BTW - the topic was inspired by the new Hagar/Satriani collaboration - Chickenfoot.

I've never had them, but have always wanted to try them - especially after watching Anthony Bourdain swoon over them in several of his Asian "No Reservations" episodes.

Back in the "old days", my grandparents used to get them for free from the local NYC butchers & use them for soup stock, but I don't recall them eating them.

They are standard dim sum fare. Wife and always get them.

Everytime I hear Chicken Feet I think of my cousin years ago. He was dating this nice Italin girl and was invited to Sunday dinner. After about the 3rd course of food a plate of speg and meataballs was placed in front of him. When dug into the plate up come a chicken foot. he set it down and excused himself thanked for the dinner and invite and left never to see that girl again.

If you like animal fat, like the ham's outer covering, don't trim the rib steak on purpose, etc. You'd like chicken feet. The reason some use them for stock is the amount of collagen in them. I personally don't like them for aesthetic reasons, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't enjoy a dish they participated in.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained,

Bob

Chicken feet - a delicacy in the Caribbean as well. Try it pickled, and stewed. I love 'em!

My grandmother liked to gnaw on them. I'm a real bone-picker, but I never could find anything to gnaw off! I do like to add them to soups. Adds to the gelatinous quality in stock, or good chicken soup.
I have a supply in the freezer.
