  1. Hello there, thanks for the braised chicken feet recipe. May i know what is siling labuyo? thanks.

  2. Hi Veronicle, Its a local variety of bird's eye chili pepper.

  3. I'm making this for dinner tonight. I think I'll try to shoot it, but I don't think it will be as pretty as your picture!

  4. Hi Dazy, goodluck...

  5. siling labuyo is bird eye chili padi.

  6. Great recipe. Just tried it. I'll say don't add the chicken cubes until you tasted it first. Becomes too salty if you don't.

  7. Yeah, this confirms that the secret to getting the feet nice and fluffy is to soak it in cold water after frying or boiling. That trick was shared by a chinese friend but I had doubts. Great recipe!

  8. we love eating chicken feet but we dont fry it,,we trow all ingredients in pressure cooker,let it boil for 15 mins when the whistle starts,,we add star anise for flavor,,

  9. Thanks for sharing your version.

  10. I tried to cook your recipe and I followed the measurement of ingredients. OMG! It was too salty could not eat. The salted black beans(tausi), soy sauce and oyster sauce are all salty.

  11. Hi anonymous, sorry for the inconvenience. I found out what went wrong, my mistake, the problem was the recipe was not written in details.

    Here are the two thing that should have been mentioned.
    1) Drain and rinse the tausi
    2) Discard the marinade

    So for the sauce of one kilo of chicken feet will be made up of:
    1/4 cup of soy sauce
    1/2 cup oyster sauce
    2 bullions
    and some salt if required

    Thanks for your feedback, if not for it I would not have learned the error. Unlucky for the other sites that have copied the recipe word for word.

    I have now rectified the errors.

  12. I just followed your recipe for dinner right
    and thoroughly. But it is too salty to be consume
    even I drained and rinsed the tausi. And its very black
    which speaks for its saltiness.

  13. Ok if it is too salty please adjust the salty ingredients until I could revised a better recipe, thank you for the feedbacks, it is appreciated.
