Spicy Chicken Feet Salad ( Yum Lab Meau Nang )


Another way we eat chicken feet, as a spicy salad item. In Thailand when we buy these, they often have the bones removed, although in the west it's more common to see chicken feet with the bones still intact. You can also substitute wing-tips if these chicken appendages aren't to your tastes.


In this photo you can see what they're like with the bone removed. If you can get them in this form, they're easier to eat.
