    anyone here eat chicken paws? My local Walmart started carrying them and they're pretty tasty!

    Clip off the claws, parboil for 1.5 hours and then chill. Bread the chilled feet, deep fry and toss in your favorite wing sauce.


    Anyone else?

    Chicken paws, as in chicken feet? There's not much meat there, unless you are ingesting the bone/joints as well.

    I eat everything.. Heads, Necks, & FEET ( Turkey Tails ) makes a great addition to a Healthy, " POULTRY SOUP BROTH ".

    " .... Smaller bones contain more gelatinous materials than larger bones. The gelatinous material is especially useful for digestive health as it provides key raw materials that help the cells of the digestive system to regenerate........ "

    I've scalded chicken feet and legs, peeled them then cooked them down along with the backs to make canned chicken stock.
    But I ain't eatn' 'em deep fried, if that's what we're talking about here.

    One of my local " Hispanic Chain Markets ", breaks down the carcasses, then packages & sells the " Neck & Feet " ( & Turkey Tails ) separately, along with the usual " Wings / Drumstick / Thighs ".

    I personally always try to buy " Turkey Tails / Chicken Necks / Chicken Wings / Chicken FEET" & Veggies to make a Poultry Soup.

    Theres lots of Fat in the Turkey Tails & gelatinous materials, in the Wings , Necks & FEET :dblthumb:

    They all add a lot of extra flavors to a Soup Broth.

    Wifey prefers plain old Chicken breast in her Soups, & won't touch my version.

    The US used to be a major exporter of chicken feet to China until there were some stiff tariffs implemented. Maybe since all that went down they're going to try and sell more of them here.

    That being said, I'm with @Wasp on this one, I know what they walk in and I'm not that hungry just yet :D

    The Turkey Tails were about the size of a large heart shaped Meatball ( 3 " x 2 " ).

    We have a Laotian friend of the family that eats those, not much to them. I use to use them to make stock, but I have dealt with too many cases of bumble-foot since I got chickens to eat them myself.

    We raised chickens on our farm we I was a kid. Grandma would fry up the feet just to keep the kids satisfied till supper was ready, had to usually wait on grandpa to get in from milking the cows.
    I remember they were very satisfying. We had large Leghorn chickens. Plenty to knaw on till supper.

    My fiance' and family made a batch of chicken foot stew when we went to her home island of Trinidad, where's it's considered "traditional" food. The stew was very good....I gotta admit being a bit reluctant, at first. But, I had several helpings. Never say never, folks. Unless it's Rocky Mountain Oysters, HELL NO! lol, though other people say they're good, knock yourselves out eating them. I'll just have another bowl of stew, here

    Perro! Nice. Those chick feet are called "fung shwa ". Means Dragon feet in Chinese.

    Cooked in reverse from above. Deep fried first, then in the flavor braise.

    I can eat them. I like them. Just don't think there is enough meat to make it worthwhile.
