Recipe by SherlynCooks - @3lda.sh3rlyn

This dish has a well-balanced combination of savory, umami, and mildly sweet flavors, with a contrast in textures between the tender chicken feet, crunchy peanuts, and soft mushrooms, exemplifying the depth and complexity of Chinese cuisine.


Green onion stems
4-5 sprigs
Dried shiitake (rehydrate)
10-12 pieces
1 1/2 cups
44 oz
4 cloves
Ginger (thumb size), sliced thinly
8 pieces
Shaoxing wine
1 Tbsp
Sesame oil
1 tsp
Neutral tasting oil (I used avocado oil)
2 Tbsp
White pepper
1/4 tsp
Worcestershire sauce
1/2 Tbsp
Light soy sauce
1/2 Tbsp
Oyster sauce
1 Tbsp
Dark soy sauce
1.5 Tbsp
1 Tbsp


  • Pan for frying
  • SautĂ© pan or sauce pan
  • Paper towels


Deep fry the chicken feet, drain, and set aside on paper towels to absorb oil.

Sauté garlic, ginger, and green onion stems with oil. (About 2-3 mins, will smell the fragrance)

Add water and all condiments.

Add chicken feet, peanuts, and rehydrated shiitake. Bring to a boil.

Lower the temperature and simmer for another 1.5 hours under low heat.

Taste and adjust accordingly with more light soy sauce or oyster sauce.

 Serve with rice, porridge, or even noodles!
