Ready in 1 hour 30 minutes
I fell in love with chicken hearts at a Brazilian restaurant. If you like dark meat chicken, you should try them - very rich and meaty!
Marinate (optional): combine the garlic, olive oil, and salt/pepper in a bag and add the chicken hearts; marinate for 2-3 hours. Saute the leek or onion and additional garlic (if you love garlic like I do...) in olive oil until soft. Add the chicken hearts and saute over medium heat until done, stirring occasionally. Alternatively, saute chicken hearts halfway and finish in the broiler. Can also be cooked on skewers on the grill.
Cooked chicken hearts will be brown throughout; cook just like you would chicken thighs.
cardiactech 1y agoI would LOVE to try this, but I can not find anyplace that sells just the chicken hearts. Can someone help me ??
elizabethgraham 4y agoThese are really tasty and super tender! They do taste just like dark meat chicken... but potentially even more flavorful. Also very cost-effective because organ meats are cheaper than muscle meats.
