Vietnamese Chicken Feet

This dish is inspired by the Asian street food scene and it has a unique and truly authentic quality to it. Chicken feet are essentially crispy and fatty just ike certain sections of a chicken wing, but with a tougher texture. This unique dish is sweet, tangy, spicy, and heavy on the char from being carmelized over a grill pan. Serve with lime wedges and let cool for a few minutes before serving.  Chicken feet can easily be found at any Asian or Latin market. Also, reserve the boiling water if desired to make a great homemade chicken stock.

Inspiration and Ideas

Vietnamese Grilled Pork Skewers (Nem Nuong)
Nem nuong embodies the perfect balance of meatiness, spiciness, sweetness and saltiness. The rich, savory bacon and the warm spices of cinnamon and star anise in the five - spice powder pair beautifully with the fresh, lively herbs.
Garlic-Miso Pork Noodle Bowl
Pick up unpasteurized miso—fermented soybean paste—for the best probiotic boost. Look for it near the refrigerated tofu products at your grocery store.
