The first time I made this my husband thought that I had become certifiably insane! My grocer even looked at me a little funny when I ordered up some chicken feet with my usual bone and liver order. Well, maybe I am a little crazy….crazy like a fox!

But wait, why am I using chicken feet again? Because they are one of the best ways to make a rich broth, and they full of glucosamine, chondroitin, collagen, and trace minerals! Great for hair, nails, joints, and our digestive health! They are composed of connective tissue and joints after all. Chicken feet have even shown to help improve arthritis and have even been used to promote regeneration and healing in spinal cord injury (source). Read my post on the Health Benefits of Bone Broth for more information.

If you get your feet straight off the farm you will need to blanch and peel them first. But, if you get them from the store, they are typically prepared for you already.

Why am use chicken feet? Because they are one of the best ways to make a rich broth, and they full of  glucosamine, chondroitin, collagen and trace minerals! Great for hair, nails, joints, and our digestive health!

Ingredients

  • 1 crockpot
  • 1 package chicken feet (about 10)
  • Filtered water
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp sea salt
  • Optional: vegetables and herbs to flavor your broth, I like mine plain

Instructions

    1. Place chicken feet in the crockpot.
    2. Cover with filtered water until feet are submerged.
    3. Add vinegar and salt (and herbs/vegetables if you are including these).
    4. Put crockpot on high until it begins to bubble, then turn down to low and leave it to cook overnight.
    5. Ideally, let it cook for 24 hours or longer.
    6. Skim off any scum that forms on top.
    7. Strain feet from the broth using a metal strainer.



    8. Put broth into a glass jar and store in the fridge.

    9. Either reheat and drink as a broth, use in soups, or just take a spoonful every morning for its health-giving benefits! It will most likely gel in the fridge. I take a scoop of the gel every morning.

Email testimonial that I just had to share: “I had to send you one last email. I succeeded with producing a fabulous chicken feet jelly. What is even better is how my dog adores it. I cook for him. his fresh cooked meals are composed of a protein, veg/fruit, starch. I used to add a beef bone broth which provided him with added nutrients my vet recommended. But, my Angelo never licked his plates clean as he does now with the chicken feet broth. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and charm. ~ Regina”

Better go feed some to your pets too! They really get a nice shiny coat from this stuff!
