In this post, I will provide instructions on how to make Stewed Chicken Feet my mother’s favorite dish . Some people may think that this is a weird part of the chicken to eat but they are really good not to mention that there is no fat in the feet and are very cost effective. They are also used to make Chicken Foot Souse and soups.
1 dozen chicken feet
1 medium onion sliced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 pimento deseeded and finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
At the end of each ‘finger’ of a chicken foot, there is a nails. These nails have to be cut off. This is done with a sharp knife or a pair of scissors. After all the feet has been cleaned, place them in a bowl of water and squeeze half of lime into the bowl. Allow the chicken feet to soak in the lime water for about 10 minutes. This is to eliminate the freshness from the chicken feet.
Remove the chicken feet from the lime water, rinse and season with the sliced onion, grated garlic, salt and black pepper.
Place a medium size pot on the stove and allow the pot to hot. Add the olive oil, one cleaned garlic clove and brown sugar. Allow the sugar to melt and carmelize. Add the chicken feet and mix into the carmelized sugar (browning) which will give the chicken feet color.
Allow to simmer for a few minutes and add 1 1/2 cups of water,ketchup and cover the pot. Allow the chicken feet to cook. After about 15 minutes, add the oyster sauce, sesame oil, salt, black pepper and pimento. Taste. Allow sauce to simmer down to desired thickness. After this has been acquired, turn off the stove. For a simple meal, Stewed Chicken feet can be served with rice.
