  • Chicken Feet

    Gade bought a pack of frozen chicken feet from the Chinese Supermarket, she tell's me there is a way to remove the bones by soaking them in something but cannot tell me what, as she does not know, anyone know? Thanks for any info.

      Tell her to pop them in the microwave for an hour or so. That should do the trick and render them unfit for consumption by even the most devoted Thai.

      Someone, please explain the attraction of chicken feet. So much hassle for a few scraps of fatty, gristly meat? OK, they are scarce, only 2 per chicken, but the rest of the bird is hardly the most expensive of food, is it? Does anyone here actually think that feet meat tastes better than a nice bit of moist breast (and DON'T take that off-topic!)?

        My missus boils the feet to remove bones then adds to salad, however my son likes her to leave the bones in. he wanted to take some to school in his lunch box
        I have tried them on a few occassions but find then rather lacklustre and quite chewy. My son fights the missus for who gets to eat the fish head (inc eyes); he also loves chicken gizzards, duck tougue, frogs. Now my daughter Lily (aged 18 months)is eating fish eyes.
        Mook is now eyeing up wildlife in the garden for the pot, no kidding!!

            I think they are disgusting, when you think what they trod in for most of the day when alive, thanks Micheal001 I am sure my Wife will appreciate the know how from your ex.

            My wife's know all Thai friend says they should be soaked in something before cooking and the bones can be pulled out, but she knows not what.

                  I am not sure if your wife meant to Caustic Soda or "Soda Fai" in Thai?

                      My wife posted this in the Thai Language section - I assume they're chicken feet?!

                      Another menu option perhaps?

                      Enjoy.

                            Preparation
                            1. Boil the water, add the old fish sauce, fish sauce, salt, sugar, dried chillies, red onion, garlic, lemon grass, kasay and kaffir leaves and continue to boil.
                            2. Clean the chicken feet carefully, clean the fish too, remembering to gut it. Add to the boiling pan and simmer for 1 hour.
                            3. Remove the chicken feet and fish from the pan and set aside.
                            4. Strain the liquid from the pot into another pan. Take the chillies, kaffirs leaves etc. you strained out into a Thai mortar and pound them to a pulp.
                            5. Add the pulped seasonings back into the strained sauce-pan.
                            6. Remove the meat from the cooked fish, pound that too and add that to the sauce pan. Be careful to remove all the fish bones.
                            7. Finally put the chicken feet back into the pan and cook for a further 20 minutes.
                            8. In a separate pan of boiling water, cook the noodles for 3 minutes, rinse with cold water.
                            9. Serve some of the noodles, together with some chicken feet and sauce.

                              Thank Ash, noticed 'Old fish sauce' (smelly fish)in the recipe, that's when I leave the house and work in the garden to avoid the smell.
