One of my favorite appetizers when I am in Chinatown or at a more authentic Chinese restaurant is chicken feet. I love the gelatinous texture reminiscent of the middle portion of a chicken wing. Alex had never tried them so when I saw some in the market I picked up a package.
Picked up at an Asian market
Cut off the toenails
Boil until tender
Bread and fry
Alex was a little apprehensive but enjoyed them after trying. He probably would not like them as well braised.
