Chicken feet may be considered fear factor food for some, but definitely not for me – I absolutely love it. At home, we call chicken feet soup “the collagen soup”, as chicken feet is naturally rich in collagen thanks to the gelatin, which is beneficial for looking youthful, promoting supple skin, reliving arthritis pain, strengthening bones etc.

If you want to stay young and beautiful the natural way, do cook this regularly ;) After simmering for 2 hours (and keeping it for a few more hours in the thermal pot if possible), the chicken feet will be tender and the soup extremely rich. Chicken soup made with chicken feet has a different richness and depth from soup brewed from chicken bones, so even if you do not eat chicken feet, I am quite sure you will enjoy this wholesome and delicious tasting chicken soup.
Peanuts impart a wonderful nuttiness to the soup, and complements the chicken feet very well. I refuse to cook this if I run out of raw peanuts!
I can never get the peanuts to be soft. After soaking in boiling water for 1.5 hours, and simmering for 1 hour with lotus root before putting in the pork ribs, it is still crunchy. Very frustrating considering the amount of gas that goes in to the pot.
Have you tried the slow cooker?
