  • Chicken feet

    Hi folks,
    I have neve made broth from chicken feet before, just the carcass. I recently obtained about a pound of feet and am interested in trying in broth (because I don't know what else to do with them). A couple of questions?
    First, do I make broth the same way? Ie, crock pot or pressure cooker?
    Second, do I use just the feet or feet plus other bones? I have a picked roasted bird in the freezer.
    Third, seasoning? What do straight up chicken feet taste like?

    Guidance from some more worldly folks appreciated, and thanks!

      Chicken feet are delish!

      Here's how I like them.

        They do make stunning broth which is full of gelatin - it sets almost solid! But I do always cook them with the carcass of a roast chicken, or a ham hock or some other well flavoured bones. And a bay leaf or two, and some black pepper corns. Feet - whether pigs trotters, calf feet (split) or poultry feet, add so much to any stock. I always have a batch of them in my freezer for soups etc.

          Thanks for the suggestions. I think I'll go with broth first -- thanks breadsauce for clarifying. I figured they were additive to the stock, not the main course. The idea of buffalo chicken feet sounds interesting, I'll have to try that too!

            I just recently made a broth from a "Black Chicken", and they come with head and feet attached. Turned out fantastic!!!!
