What I love most about this chicken feet dish, is the gummy sauce that it produce.

Cleaning The Chicken Feet

Is important that you clean the chicken feet.

Raw Chicken Feet

Chop off all the nails, you don’t want that in your cooking especially if you are feeding children.

And it nails sticking out does not look good on a plate.

You must also remove the skin. This is vert thin but once you start removing it, it will easily peel off of the feet.

Once that done, wash the feet with vinegar and lime or lemon juice.

How To Cook Curry Chicken Feet

Since chicken feet is not as tender as the other parts of the chicken you will have to pressure cook it to get it soft.

The pressure cooker will also reduce the cooking time and get the job done right.

In Jamaica, curry chicken feet is serve with rice or hard food, boiled green banana, boiled dumpling and boiled yellow yam.
