Healthy Chicken Feet Broth Recipe


  • 10 chicken feet
  • 2 medium-sized potatoes, diced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 sprigs of cilantro
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • 1 small onion, julienne
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 stalk of celery, chopped
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 cup of shredded broccoli (optional)
  • ½ cabbage cut into large pieces (optional)
  • Merkén (Chilean spice)
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. Thoroughly wash the chicken feet in warm water and remove the nails with kitchen scissors or a sharp knife. Pat them dry with paper towels and set aside.
  2. In a large pot, place the clean chicken feet, bay leaves, carrot, onion, celery, garlic, cilantro sprigs, salt, and pepper. Cover with cold water and heat over high heat until it reaches a boil. Remove the foam that forms on the surface with a spoon, reduce to medium heat, bring to a boil again, cover the pot, and cook for about 45 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.
  3. If you want to add cabbage and broccoli, do so after about 30 minutes of cooking. Cover again and cook for an additional 15 minutes.
  4. Serve the chicken feet broth immediately, piping hot, optionally garnished with freshly chopped cilantro and a pinch of Merkén.
