Stewed Spicy Chicken Feet (Kai Kiok)

Chicken feet are one of the chicken parts that I really love to cook. Some people may think that this part is weird and not suitable to cook. They may put it a few feet away from their mouth. But you have to know that it’s may turn into delicious dish if you know the right way to cook it. Chicken feet may contain only a little meat but it’s eaten mainly for the skin, tendons and its cartilage. Like other parts of chicken meat, it does also contain its own nutritional value. Some says that consume it regularly can help to strengthen joints.

There are many ways to cook it. It can be stewed or soup in many different recipe. My recipe for today is stewed spicy chicken feet. I really don't remember where I get this recipe but I've cook it so many times and the whole family really love it.

This is a great recipe! My fiancee is from Southern China. Her recipe is quite a bit different.


Thanks for sharing.


Hi AloyCia, the chicken feet looks good. I've been searching for this recipe for a while now and i can't wait to try it. It reminds me of my late grandmother who used to cook this dish at least once a week. My only questions is how many chicken feet should i use for this recipe?
