just go to a buffet to get your fix... chicken feet isn't exactly a one step recipe- you gotta deep fry the sucker first, then mix in the ingredients, then steam it.

I recommend Star Walk (midland/steeles) lunch buffet... they have pretty good dim sum stuff.

According to my mom this works.

Ingredients:
8 pairs chicken feet

Marinade
2 tsp preserved soya beans ('taucheo') — minced
1 tsp Lee Kum Kee black bean garlic sauce
1 tsp Lee Kum Kee (Premium) oyster sauce
4 chilli padi —(bird's eye chili) chopped
1 red chilli — chopped
1 tsp light sesame oil
1 tbsp soft brown sugar or to taste
1/4 tsp white pepper poeder
1/4 tsp dark soy sauce (mushroom soy sauce) for coloring

CHOP off nails of chicken feet and wash well. Blanche in boiling water for 1 minute. Drain well. Chop into 2 sections and brush with dark soya sauce. Deep fry until golden brown. Soak in water until it is puffy.
Marinate deep-fried chicken feet with marinade ingredients for at least an hour. Place all the ingredients in a big bowl and steam over boiling water for an hour or until chicken feet is tender. Thicken gravy with corn flour and water mixture. Dish out and serve in small sauce dishes.

Having eaten chicken feet -- once -- I am always reminded of American Dad when I see it at a buffet:

Stan: What is this?
Bah Bah: It's fish face with cabbage stem.
Stan: In the West, we call that garbage.

You can probably get some from those frozen dim sum places if you want to make it at home.

Chicken feet doesn't look that bad to me.

I mean seriously, if people can eat hotdogs, burgers and processed meats...

Why not chicken feet?!

it's not that bad - basically, the feet come from the butcher or whoever with the yellowy skin peeled already... then the nails are chopped off... it's then boiled for a bit, then deep fried, marinated, steamed, and served.

this is more sanitary than other stuff - like rice noodles... you don't want to know how that's made.
