Chicken paws are cooked and eaten in many countries. After an outer layer of hard skin is removed, most of the edible tissue on the feet consists of skin and tendons, with no muscle. This gives the feet a distinct texture different from the rest of the chicken meat. Being mostly skin, chicken feet are very gelatinous
Chicken paws are the feet of chicken cut off at the ankle, unlike chicken feet, which are attached to the lower leg.
