I'm of Polish, Hungarian and German decent. My parents ate chicken feet when they were kids, as they didn't have lots of money so they ate all they could to survive.

Isn't chicken feet extremely high in cholesterol? I know chicken tips are bad for you and Chinese people eat them as snacks.

they definately are! Remember your just basically eating skin.

as for the head? Eyeballs, and brains are pure lipids in nature. So its almost like pure liquid cholesterol :-0

This topic just gets better and better.... :D

I personally don't like chicken feet. The sight of those freaky toenails get to me.... Yet I have no problems watching other ppl eat it. Everybody has their own preferences.

Chicken feet is quite yummy. I've had frog legs and snake meat too, but this was in Asia. The funny thing is I found some bones in snake meat, which is kinda odd. Maybe it's rat meat and the vendor was selling it as snake meat hehe..

I've been to my Jamaican friends house and they had jerk chicken feet. it was very good. They also cooked curry goat a few times, goat head soup at the big events (also known as Mannish water). Cow foot soup too.

My Guyanese peoples eat chicken feet, pig tail-cowfoot in their pepperpot, and of course cook up rice.

I am Vietnamese and dated a Guyanese girl for a while so, i know.

Us Vietnamese basically eat the same things Caribbean people eat but, we cook em differently. WE fry less and steam more or lightly fry.

here's some Viet food= Curry Chicken w/cassava, tripe, oxtail either curried for rice/bread or steam stewed for noodles(rice noodles), cow foot soup (different from Caribbean peoples though), chicken feet in chilie hot sauce and soy sauce, bok choy, bitter melons, okra w/beef, gingered king fish or snapper, salt fish w/garlic and onions, um..... springrolls and noodles, theres so much more. Oh yeah Vietnamese banana fritters ( i think we got this from the Flips).

Theres over 500 Vietnamese recipes

There's no denying they're tasty, but I can't be bothered with all those little bones...

Sounds tasty to tell you the truth, but cant bother with all that bones for so little meat. I usually get tired

However if soemone was to clean it and leave only meat for eating....yumm!!
