Chicken Feet & Peanuts Soup Recipe

This Chinese-style chicken soup is rich in collagen - great for hair, skin, nails and staying youthful.

Serves: 3-4

Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 2 hrs 5 mins


  • 400 grams (or about 30) chicken feet
  • 1 whole chicken bone about 200-300 grams
  • 100 grams raw peanuts
  • 8 pitted red dates
  • 5 garlic cloves peeled
  • 2.5 litres water
  • salt to taste


  1. Prep chicken feet by peeling away the outer yellow skin, if any. Chop off and discard the tips of the claws (nails).
  2. In a pot of boiling water, blanch chicken feet and chicken bones for about 5 minutes. Rinse and drain.
  3. In a soup pot, add blanched chicken feet, chicken bone, peanuts, red dates, garlic and 2.5 l water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer (with a slight ventilation opening on the lid) for about 2 hours. Season to taste with salt.

    I can never get the peanuts to be soft. After soaking in boiling water for 1.5 hours, and simmering for 1 hour with lotus root before putting in the pork ribs, it is still crunchy. Very frustrating considering the amount of gas that goes in to the pot.
