  • Chicken Hearts

    Do you eat them? What's your favourite way of making them?
    Just bought some from my chinese grocer and is excited to make them tonight! :d

    I love chicken hearts.

    I trim all the excess fat, marinade in a bit of gluten free soya sauce, olive oil, garlic and chilles for at least a few hours/overnight.

    Skewer onto bamboo skewers that have been soaked in water for an hour and then I hit the bbq and grill them up.

    Left over chicken hearts sauted with bacon the next day is a pretty special treat at my house.

        Honestly, we just use them like chicken breast chunks in the Knight house. Cheaper and pre-formed with better flavor.
        Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          Left over chicken hearts? No such thing back in the day..
          I've stopped eating chicken because I couldn't get it in high quality
          Though I really enjoyed it in BBQ's/on the pan.

          Try eating cow's heart - it's awesome too.

            I roasted them once with a medley of tubers. Don't do that. Can't stop eating.

            Normally, soups with any vegetables will work great with some lightly browned chicken hearts!

              I just sautee them and eat them. Well, the word "them" is an overstatement. I have only ever had them out of the bag of giblets, so I've only ever had them one at a time. If I ever find a whole bunch of them, I think I will skewer them like kebobs.

                every oogly bit is delicious in broth and coconut milk, with some greens and hot sauce added at the end. especially if you are at all squeamish.

                As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

                    I make these for my husband and he LOVES them! I have never tried them, I just can't get over the fact that it's the heart of an animal /squeal. Anyway, I usually throw them in a pot when I cook a whole chicken. There's a sticky chicken recipe on allrecipes that I use on the whole chicken, throw in the hearts and cook for 5 hours on low heat. Cooking them this long made them less chewy apparently. It's amazing, or so he says :P

                      I've only ever had them at Tucanos (a Brazilian style churrasco). They tasted like Hickory Farms brand lil smokies.

                        what a coincidence to see this thread - i just bought some chicken hearts. Have no idea what i'm gonna do with them. Looks like grilling on skewers is the most popular method, but i'm not sure that's gonna be optimal on my indoor grill pan.

                        bonus, i guess, is that they will all be mine b/c i can't imagine my husband will even touch one.

                            I make an asian marinade with fresh ginger, fresh garlic, coconut aminos (or wheat free soy), a tiny bit of brown sugar, and a splash of rice vinegar. Marinate them over night, skewer, and cook over charcoal. Yummy!
