Would You or Could You Eat Chicken Paws?
Do chickens even have paws? This is available now at the North Utica Walmart, and it's not very expensive.
No joke folks. This is big business in China, Indonesia, Korea, Thailand, Ukraine, Russia, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, Philippines, and many more.
Wikipedia says after an outer layer of thin skin is removed, most of the edible tissue on the feet consists of skin and tendons, with no muscle. This gives the feet a distinct texture different from the rest of the chicken's meat. Being mostly skin, chicken feet are very gelatinous. The feet are used to make bone broth which is extremely high in nutrients. Check out all the recipes online using chicken paws/feet.
There is a difference between a chicken paw and a chicken foot. A chicken paw doesn't have as much of the lower leg as a chicken foot.
