Braised Chicken Feet with Mushroom

This is the most adult dish that my son likes. However, he does not like the smell of the spices, so I don’t usually put it if he is eating.

  • 30 chicken feet
  • 20 pieces of mushroom (I’m using small ones)
  • Hard-boiled eggs (Optional)

  • Orange Peel
  • Cinnamon Stick
  • Cloves
  • Anise Star
  • Cardamom

  • 3 tablespoon Oyster Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Light Soy Sauce
  • 2 teaspoon Dark Soy Sauce

How to do it:
  1. Wash & cut away nails on the chicken feet.
  2. Marinade with 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce and 1/2 teaspoon dark soy sauce.
  3. Soak mushroom in water till soft, remove stalks.
  4. Drain chicken feet from soy sauce.
  5. Deep fry chicken feet till golden brown. Remove & drain.
  6. Add fried chicken feet, mushroom, spices & hard-boiled eggs (optional) into a pot of boiling water.
  7. Add in the seasonings and let in simmer for 4 hours so till the chicken feet & mushrooms are soft.
  8. You can add more seasonings if you find it too bland.

You can choose not to use spices and use quail eggs instead of regular chicken eggs.
