Chicken Foot Soup Recipe

Another popular Jamaican Saturday soup and a personal favorite. Chicken Foot Soup is one of those love it or leave it Jamaican delicacies that this Jamaican absolutely loooves. Besides the obvious presence of a few chicken feet there is really no difference between chicken foot soup and a bowl of traditional Jamaican chicken soup. When preparing chicken foot soup I like to saute the chicken feet with onion and garlic and the pumpkin in the recipe, before adding any other ingredients. This gives the soup a richer color and more robust flavor.
