It has gone viral among the Chinese baking sites 
after the $5000 bread!

It is so soft and fluffy,
yet it is very easy to make,
simply dump all ingredients into the bread machine to knead.

Make into buns or rolls.

Braise chicken feet noodle looks yummy and complicated.

No worry,
braising chicken feet is not too difficult afterall if you know the way.

The beauty of it, is you can braise it and keep it for the next day.
In fact it tastes better after sitting in the fridge.

This is the braise chicken feet prepared ahead

Do you like a no fuss recipe?

Easy Braised Chicken Feet
7 pairs chicken feet, cleaned & chopped 1/2
3 mushrooms soaked overnight & 1/2ed or 1/4ed
2 sea cucumber, soaked and cleaned & softened
2" cinnamon sticks
3 star anise
5 dried chillies
1 large clove galic, whole wedges
few slices ginger
some pepper seed
soya sauce, salt & sugar to taste
dark soya sauce for colour

1) heat up a little oil in a pot, fry the ginger until fragrant
2) add mushroom and sea cucumber & briefly fry
3) add enough water, allow to simmer until mushroom & sea cucumber are softened
4) add chicken feet and the spices and continue braising
5) when done, add soya sauce, both light & dark, salt and sugar to taste

Ideas to serve
1) I have opened a can of abalone to serve with it.
    Just slice the abalone & warm the pieces in the hot gravy.
    cooking it will toughen the abalone!
2) pour the braised chicken feet over the plate of cooked noodle.
    Remember to sprinkle some fried shallots and spring onions for added flavour
