They are a wonderful addition to a good, rich, gelatin-laden chicken stock (says the guy who made 35 pounds of jellied meat last week).
As far as actually eating them goes, they're a little bony, but if you like something like pig's feet, they are roughly similar, if a lot smaller.
Not bad in any of a number of Chinese dishes, either deep-fried and then braised, or braised in soy sauce with sugar, five spice, ginger and shallots or garlic, etc.
Eating them is sort of a social activity, like picking crabs. Not a lot of meat on them, but they can be tasty, so sitting around with a lot of them, suitably prepared, schmoozing while eating, is indicated.
