marinate chicken gizzards in ingredients 2-4 for 8-12 hours.** i prefer overnight, the buttermilk will help tenderize the gizzards**
drain chicken livers. in a mixing combine all the breading ingredients. place breader in in mixing bowl or bag. bread chicken gizzards...make sure you coat the gizzards evenly
heat deep fryer to 320 degrees. deep fry for 4-6 minutes or until golden brown. gizzards cook fast. drain on paper towels
plate up and serve with your favorite hot sauce!

**if you wish, you can simmer the chicken gizzards in some water with a little salt, garlic powder & hot sauce for 10-15 minutes. cool, bread then fry**

can these be baked instead of fried....and if so what temp and how long.......
user Sherri Logan Williams logansw - Dec 13, 2011
yes they can be baked...i would simmer them first, dredge them in egg wash then bredge them with seasoned bread crumbs. bake for 20-30 or until golden brown. to make it easy, you can use some of the shake and bake breaders...they are already seasoned for you.

bake at 350 degrees.
