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.
