How To Make fried chicken gizzards

  • 1
    First you want to prep gizzards for cooking. Remove gizzards from container and discard chicken hearts if they're present. Cut away excessive fat and gristle, then wash gizzards thoroughly under running cold water rubbing the gizzard to remove the fat. This is an important step. You want to remove as much fat as possible in order for the gizzards to be tender.

    Boil the gizzards. Add just enough water to cover the gizzards. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer for about 60 minutes to tenderize.

    When done, drain completely in a colander. In another bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients, except the oil and egg. Blend well.
