When i go to have yum cha, i realised they serve cooked chicken feet as one of their dishes. I tried it and I love it. Would you eat cooked chicken feet? Have you ever tried it? What do you think of its texture and taste?

Chicken feet is one of the main dishes here in the Philippines. We cook chicken feet on different ways.. Soup, fry, grilled, or even steaks.. If you're a pure Filipino, you should know how to properly eat Chicken Feet..

Chicken feet here in the Philippines called Adidas. I like it when it is cooked like adobo and it is also good to put in porridge. Every part of the Chicken is not wasted we cook all of the parts of it. I know that some foreigners dislike to eat it because of the appearance and I agree that their no meat in that part. When I eat chicken I prefer to use my hand because it is difficult to use utensils when you eat it.

I've heard about other cultures using the chicken feet. No, I have never eaten anything made with them. I used to have chickens on the farm here, and I can honestly say you would never find me eating anything made with their feet! To me, I don't care how much you clean and boil them, they would never be clean enough for me lol.

It is that we have the same choice. In no reason in particular, i do not feel of eating this chicken part. Even it is properly clean or cook i am not convince to eat chicken feet. I am not thinking of filthy thing or what, and i can eat it if i want, but I'd rather choose not to eat because i see it as a baby's little hand.

I love chicken feet. Especially when they are cooked in soup or curry. I don't like if it if fried though. I love to bite and suck the tender bones. Yummy!

I love chickem feet when we go for dim sum. It is really really good. It reminds me of when I was smaller and my dad would bring home a take home container of chicken feet from Chinatown. The two of us would sit there for what seemed like forever sucking and nibbling on them. Yummy.

Hi yelrihs, in the UK I had lots of chinese friends and we would often eat in dim sum restaurants together and most times they would order chickens feet which came in a bamboo basket. Now I have to say I could never really see the point as they looked so gristly with very little meat on them. I'll try most things but the gristle factor just put me off completely and I never got around to tasting them as the look of them just put me off too much.

Chicken feet is delicious because it is cooked as adobo before it is roasted. It is a hot selling street food in our place and it is called as ADIDAS. Well I refrain from eating roasted food because of carcinogen...

I have had chicken feet in the chinese soup, I'm not sure what it was called but it tasted delicious. I liked the salty flavor of the soup as well. But I didn't want to eat the chicken feet. I just ate the soup, and left the chicken feet.
