Hi everyone, the reason I decided to share with you this recipe is because it is super-duper easy to cook up, not only that it is super economical to make ($10 for all ingredients required) and has many health benefits. See my Chicken Feet, Why would you eat that?!?!?!?! article. I hope this recipe will help assist those with curious taste to replicate at home.
2 kilos of Chicken Feet;
4-6 slices Ginger (you can use ginger powder or minced ginger in a jar)
1 Green Chili
1 Red Chili
2 cups sugar
2 cups White Vinegar
white pepper or Szechuan peppers
1.) Boil chicken feet in water ensuring water level covers all of the chicken feet, add ginger slices/ powder. Boil on high heat for 20 mins. (you can cut down boiling time to 10 mins if you use kettle boiled water)
2.) In a separate pot add 2 cups of white vinegar on low heat.
3.) Mix in sugar, peppers and stir until sugar dissolves.
4.) Remove from heat and add 2 cups of cold water, set aside.
5.) After 20 mins remove chicken feet from heat and rinse under cold water. This prevents the chicken feet from going soggy giving it a chewy texture.
6.) Use clever and roughly chop each foot in half. This step is optional I just find that chopping the feet allows flavors in infuse into the skin a lot better.
7.) Add carrots (roughly chopped) and chilli vinegar sauce to the chicken and refrigerate overnight.
