Chicken Foot Soup Recipe

Step 1

Wash them chickens feet... scrub between toes... remove "toe-jam". Rinse in clear water.

Step 2

Wash and de-fat chicken breasts... remove skin and bones. Cut into small pieces. Pat dry with paper towels, and saute in hot oil or butter for a few minutes.

Step 3

Add vegetables... and spices...saute a few minutes more. Stir, make onions soft but not browned. Add a little wine, cook over low heat for a few minutes while you drink a cup of the wine and some of the liquid evaporates... oh, yeah... do not cover skillet.

Step 4

Boil water... add bouillion and dissolve (the bouillion). Throw in the whole mess from the skillet, all meat and vegetables... toss in the feet... bring to a boil and then simmer until the chicken is cooked and tender. Have another cup of wine.

Step 5

NOW... in a clean skillet... heat some oil... add some flour, equal measure... maybe 1/4 cup, each... over moderate heat, make a "roux"... browning the flour/oil mixture, but do not burn... add to the soup.

Step 6

Cook the whole thing until slightly thickened... remove from heat... add the rest of the wine...heh...heh... cover... let set a few minutes... and serve with cooked rice (maybe add cooked rice to the soup... or seperately)... Open a second bottle of wine to serve with the soup...
