Guisado de Patitas de Pollo - Chicken Feet Costa Rican Style


I picked up something extra special for my Aunt this past week at the Farm Store, Chicken Feet! Ever since I was a child we had all heard about her love of Chicken Feet in Tomato Sauce, it brought strange images to my mind until I'd actually seen the dish as an adult. Well, she wasn't feeling great so I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to make her some comfort food and try my hand at a new dish. If eating the chicken feet themselves is not for you, remember you can always just have the sauce/stew and it's totally worth it. It's a low and slow cooking recipe that yields a deliciously silky and flavorful sauce, courtesy of the gelatin & collagen found in the chicken feet. Here's my recipe:
