You need to try this Homemade Chicken Feet Stock as it’s simply the best chicken stock ever!

Stock, sometimes called bone broth, is a savory cooking liquid that forms the basis of many dishes, particularly soups, stews, and sauces. Making stock involves simmering animal bones, meat, seafood, or vegetables in water or wine, often for an extended period. Mirepoix or other aromatics may be added for more flavor


  • 4.6 lbs (2.0 kg) cleaned chicken feet
  • Large pot about 8 quarts. ( 3. liters)
  • Water to cover the feet by 1 to 2 inches
  • Salt and pepper to taste.

  1. Add feet and water to the pot and bring to boil.
  2. Boil for 10 minutes.
  3. Reduce to simmer and remove feet to drain.
  4. Rinse in cold water.
  5. When cool, remove all nails at the 1st joint and discard.
  6. Add the salt and pepper to the water and then all of the feet.
  7. Bring back to the boil and then reduce to simmer for 4 hours covered.
  8. Remove boiled feet and discard.
