Slow Cooker Braised Chicken and Feet


Braised chicken feet in black bean sauce is a common sight at Dim Sum restaurants and most of  the time they are pre-fried. Being the lazy me, I just dumped them into the slow cooker together with the chicken, added in some spices and let them mingle together while I attended to my other household chores.  I put the slow cooker on 'high', attended to it some three hours later and after adjusting the taste, it was ready to be served.

    1. Yes, it's very easy to make. You can also deep-fry them before putting them into the slow cooker.
