Undead Chicken (Ka Gai-tord Nam Gai )


During Halloween, if you kill a chicken, it will rise from the dead and the chicken claws will try to take back it's flesh from your plate. BOO! Well that's what I tell small children anyway, we celebrate Halloween as a bit of western fun even in Thailand, this dish is chicken dumplings with fried chicken feet. You can eat it all, if it doesn't eat you first.
