Crispy Sweet Chicken Feet for Halloween


Tomorrow will be Halloween night and I wanted to prepare something different again.

I don’t know how this inspiration really came, I did not want fingers again and in some way I imagined that chicken ones would be great.

I know that chicken feet are edible and in many places they are very much appreciated, but here this is something that the most can’t imagine to eat and so we are.

I prepared a quite stiff dough with flour, olive oil, water powdered sugar and baking powder.

With about 150 g of flour I got 16 feet, enough for a small family!
