I’ve got a lot to say about this Fried Chicken Feet recipe. First off, if you can get over the creepiness, these really aren’t that bad. In fact my wife even used the word delicious. And as far as Chicken Feet Recipes go, this probably really is the best of the best. The secret lies in how they’re prepared. Though they are fried to give it that crispy outside texture, they are actually boiled for an hour and a half to make the inside tender. And I actually borrowed the sauce from my Wasabi Chicken Wings recipe, which I’ve included below, but in all honesty if you like spice then I highly recommend using the sauce from my Firecracker Shrimp. I’ve included a link for that as well if you’re interested in that. The second thing I would say about Fried Chicken Feet is that there really isn’t a lot of meat, unfortunately. I think someone would really be ordering or serving these up for the “Awe” effect, because these really are impressive to look at and they make a great conversational piece!
