Sweet and Sour Chicken FeetSweet and sour chicken feet are boiled chicken feet marinated with in sweet and sour sauce for at least 8 hours.

Both Chicken feet and trotter contain rich collagen and thus are liked by girls in China. In most provinces of China, chicken feet are considered to a money grabber. So there are different ways of cooking chicken feet in Chinese cuisines. For example, in Sichuan province, those chicken feet are marinated with pickled capsicum frutescens. One of the famous brands is Youyou(泡椒凤爪). And in Guangdong province, we have steamed chicken feet (虎皮凤爪).
