My husband requested chicken gizzards (no hearts)for dinner. Just fried they turn out too chewy and most of the time over cooked. I made this recipe today. He loved them and said they were the best he has ever eaten. Read More

I think the proportions are wrong. Not enough oil not enough water or too much flour. I added full cup of water and it still got burned. Update: I made it again in a new pressure cooker. Increased water to 2 cups but I had about 1.30lb of giblets. Added some butter and couple spoons of sour cream. This time I liked it. Read More

It's like the most tender fillet mignon!! I increased the water to 1 cup and the gizzards were incredibly tender. By increasing the water you create a better gravy with the gizzards. This recipe is not like a plate of deep fried gizzards the gravy smothers the gizzards so serving this over rice or mashed potatoes is the way to go. I also added some Cajun seasoning to the flour and server braised brousel sprouts on the side! I highly recommend this recipe!!!! Read More

Oh my was this good. I got more than I expected. Not only did I get highly flavorful results I discovered it makes its own gravy. The only problem I had was letting the pressure cooker cook too long - 35 minutes would have been better than 45. I will use this recipe for making beef liver too. I most certainly will be eating chicken gizzards more often. Thank you BJALLEN. Read More

The use of the pressure cooker is the key. I pulled mine out of storage for this recipe and the meat came out so tender and delicious. This might sound strange but I served this with macaroni and cheese and it was a big hit. Actually mixed the mac & cheese together with the hearts and gizzards -- yum! Read More

Awesome. Gizzards have always been a guilty pleasure. When we make a whole roast we put the giblets in the bottom of the rack and braze them. In this recipe the gizzards are totally melted. I did use chicken stock intend of water. I think I might use some poultry spice or sage next time to add a bit more zing but this was very very good! Served with brown rice and lima beans. Read More
