Ever since Mom was with that friend of hers, now she's gotten interested in this kind of meal. No offense but the mention of it has really felt a bit disgusting in my opinion. She even asked me for a recipe online. They even bought one last night. What's weird of it is that almost every one in the family likes it. maybe I'm a bit biased because I haven't tasted it yet. It reminds of that scene from 90 day fiance, when a mother in law cooked chicken feet and none of them ate it I mean talk about disrespect.

The Chinese taught us how to eat chicken feet, contrary to popular belief the feet is not cooked as is, actually it's scalded and if you are good could take out the whole outer part like stockings, the nails are also chopped off. Chicken feet is rich in collagen and their are studies now that collagen help us to look young. It's also a component of many traditional Chinese medicine, Im just fine with Chicken feet although it also took me time to learn to eat it

@Letranknight2015 what I meant was if chicken feet is what is being served at the moment and there was no choice so it also has benefits. We use to just throw it away., same goes with chicken head.
Chicken feet may look a little scary, and confronting at first but they make a most nourishing, and nutrient-rich stock. It is yellow in color, and gels up beautifully — a sign of a good broth. Think of this: When…

What about "pata"? Chicken feet is "cleaner" than that because it is skinned before cooking.

@Letranknight2015 imagine pig feet here:
Make sure to dry the pork thoroughly after boiling—this is the secret to achieving that crisp skin!

i tasted this when my mother asked me to buy chicken feet at a nearby store where grilled/ roasted chicken feet are sold. it tasted good, especially the sole part. i also cooked chicken feet in Kuwait when we were evacuating from the gulf war.

Hello @ridingbet Wow I didn't know you experience the gulf and you've been to the middle east. Good thing you didn't get hurt over there.

I love chicken feet. We were able to eat a very delicious spicy chicken feet when the family friend of ours take us to a Chinese restaurant , when we went to Manila last May 2016, to attend our daughter's graduation. It was so delicious and soft, we ordered another platter of it when we still have other dishes to eat.

Hello @SIMPLYD I don't mind the spicy chicken because I often eat it in Jollibee, but never the chicken. I don't know I just don't like it from the way I look at it.

@Letranknight2015 You should not imagine what the feet are for, so you can savor the deliciousness of the spicy chicken feet. Because if you will always be like that, you can never eat and enjoy the great taste.

i think it's usually cooked adobo style, and i think it's supposed to have collagen? that's what morning girl/@salonga said in her post last year (
