Cooked chicken legs in sauce
Chicken feet are more commonly found on the shelves of pet shops than on our plates, even though they are a particularly important source of calogen. Calogen is essential for the formation of connective tissues in the human musculoskeletal system. It also maintains the elasticity of the skin, preventing the appearance of wrinkles. So it's definitely worth eating them! 

What do they taste like? If you like pig's feet, you'll love chicken feet. They are particularly loved and eaten by people in Asian countries. If possible, I recommend that you choose the legs of domestic hens, as they are bigger and even tastier.


    • chicken legs: 1 kilo
    • garlic: 5 cloves (crushed)
    • dried oregano: 1 teaspoon
    • salt: 1 teaspoon
    • sweet paprika powder: 1 teaspoon
    • sweet paprika powder: 0,5 teaspoon
    • onion powder: 0.5 teaspoon
    • Ground coriander kernels: 0.5 teaspoon
    • Cumin: 1 teaspoon
    • Celery stalks: 2
    • carrots: 2
    • water: 3 glasses
    • tomato paste: 1 tbsp
    • chopped parsley: 2 tbsp

    Recipe Directions

  1. 1. First, wash the legs of the hens, peel off any remaining skin, if any, and clip the nails. Do not clip the nails as you would for yourself, but through the joint closest to the nail.
  2. 2. Make a mixture of garlic, oregano, salt, sweet and smoked paprika, onion powder, coriander and cumin and rub it on the legs of the hens.
