Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chicken feet
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 inch ginger sliced
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce (I highly recommend using dark soy sauce so that the chicken feet will have a very nice dark brown color)
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 can beer (12oz)
  • optional green onions for serving

Instructions

  • Chop the nails off the claws using a sharp knife and rinse the feet thoroughly. Remove any dirty part on the chicken feet. (Try to cut them through the joint for easy cutting.)
  • Add cold water and chicken feet to a skillet or wok. (Make sure the chicken feet are submerged.)
  • Bring to boil and cook for 10 minutes, and drain the water.
  • Place the skillet over medium-high heat, and add vegetable oil.
  • Add garlic and ginger. Stir fry until fragrant.
  • Add chicken feet, soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sugar. Mix together with a wooden spoon.
  • Add beer and bring to boil.
  • Cover with a lid and simmer for 25-30 minutes or until tender. (Check the chicken feet from time to time and make sure there's enough liquid during braising. Add water if needed.)
  • Remove the lid, and turn the heat to high. Stir fry until the sauce has thickened. (If you’d like to thicken your sauce faster, you can add the mixture of cornstarch and water. Mix 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water).

Notes

  • If you like the spicy flavor, you can add crushed dried hot chili to the sauce.
  • It’s important to add chicken feet to the COLD water, bring them to boil and cook for 10 minutes before braising. Don’t skip this step as this will help to remove the odors from the chicken.
