Chicken hearts are delicious; taste a bit like beef.
So are beef hearts.
The rest of the organs are just chum.

Grilled?

The accepted method for pee dees is frying, Smitty. And they're f*cking delicious.

Is there something worrying about a small piece of meat?

oh man. i had a chicken liver ravioli at Poggio Trattoria in Sausalito CA on my way south one trip.
absolutely delicious!

I don't cook chicken hearts much, but I go to the local Asian supermarket every once a while and get duck hearts. They make wonderful chili

Mmmm - fried chicken hearts.  My favorite part of the chicken, after the drumsticks and before the feet (dim sum style).

Count me in as another chicken heart lover.  Never had it grilled always fried.  I bet this marinade would make awesome grilled chicken hearts, Vietnamese lemongrass style.  Just sub the chicken hearts for the pork.

Duck gizzards are far superior to chicken gizzards.

It's my go to marinade for any protein.  It tastes just like the restaurants. That site has lots of good Vietnamese recipes.

It's bookmarked now, as is Yakitori

I make yakitori chicken hearts all the time. A friend of mine liked them and called them meat olives. Some friends won't even try because they yellow bellied something or others.
 
2020-07-02 5:23:07 PM  
I don't know why my sister started frying chicken hearts, but after I got over the ewww factor and tried them she had to swat my hand from taking em all!

FrancoFile: LordZorch: Deep fried spicy gizzards.

Can't dispute that. Duck is pretty much the superior in flavor and texture to chicken in damn near everything. Heck, if it wasn't twice as expensive, duck would be a game-changer for fried fowl cutlets or nuggets. Same for goose.

One thing we'd do when I was at Mesa Verde and we had quail was fried and coated with our prickly pear and pepper jam or a spicier version of our buffalo sauce. Again, if it weren't for the cost factor...buffalo quail would kick the stuffing out of chicken at every tailgate party. But chicken is inexpensive, and thus with the economics of scale, we do chicken wings and chicken tenders.

But yeah, duck, quail and goose are frippin' great, damn near whatever you do with them.

2020-07-02 7:19:39 PM  
subby, you should try them.

i made marinated beef heart (anticuchos) yesterday. i think the key with heart is to brown/char/fry the outside quickly while keeping a pink interior. over-cooked heart is tough and liver-y.

I ask for more grilled chicken hearts aboyt every other weekend. My local yakitori joint makes 'em right. They go really well with a cold, crisp, dry sake. In fact, I'll probably have some tonight.

Bill Cosby (long before he was even on TV, let alone was revealed as the creep he turned out to be) had a short comedy skit about chicken hearts. It was on his debut album, IIRC. One of the stories from his childhood.

My top picks, if available.

Hattsu: Chicken hearts
Negima: chicken thighs (momo) and leeks (negi)
Kawa: Chicken skin
Bara: Pork belly
Tsukune: minced chicken often served with a raw egg for dipping
Shishiato: little peppers, usually not hot, but 1 in 50 or so will have a kick
shiatake: earthy mushrooms
Uzura tamago: quail eggs

A few pics to whet your appetite.

Thanks for this
Seriously I'm not well versed in Asian cuisine
MN does have kickass ethnic food very different from the hot dishes trope

We have those too with mayo or miracle whip your choice

On a business trip, I had them raw, with a sprinkling of salt and a dab of sesame oil. I would recommend it to anyone.

Wined and dined my way through Madison, wi last year.  Not chicken hearts, but duck hearts at one of the restaurants were to die for.  This fall those little nuggets are coming out of every bird I take from the sky

OMG gizzards too. I had a friend in college from Tanzania. One day he cooked me up something like curried chicken gizzards over rice. I still think about it sometimes. I wish I had the recipe.

Here's an entire yakitori quail I had at a shrine in Kyoto. I ate the brain to gain courage in battle.

My mom, who grew up running errands in her family's corner grocery store back in the days when every corner in the old neighborhoods had one or two, said her most satisfying chore was pulling hearts out of chicken carcasses. Mom had her weird moments.

If they weren't sold with the rest of the giblets, I imagine grandma ate them all. Being an old German lady they were probably just boiled on the top of the stove for a couple hours until they turned into rubber.
 
2020-07-02 9:56:47 PM  
Very little experience with gizzards and such, other than chopping them fine and adding them to HALF of the gravy.  My sisters refused to eat the gizzard gravy, so Mom, Dad and I split our half three ways, whereas my four sisters and my brother had to split their part five ways.

Have had fried chicken feet.  They taste much like fried chicken skin, but crunchier.

Chicken hearts are delicious, along with the liver and gizzards.

People get so squeamish about eating organs, but if you eat any sort of processed meat, it's likely that some bits of organ are in it, but not listed in the ingredient list.

Brain and spinal cord are not allowed, but some places cut corners when it comes to what's called "mechanically separated meat." So they take what remains on the skeleton after the major cuts are removed and then put it through a grinder so it's a puree. Then they force it through fine meshes to get rid of the bone fragments. They're not supposed to use the skull and spine, but as I mentioned before, some places cut corners.
