    J Zoch's Note:

    My husband loves chicken gizzards, the frozen ones are so expensive in the stores, I decided to try to make my own. He was very impressed with them and said they were actually better than the store bought ones. I personally have never liked them, but for him, I tried one. And believe it or not, LOVED IT! My daughter loved them as well, of course, I didn't tell her what it was until she tried it. So now we have a new meal for our household.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 -3 lbs chicken gizzards (or more)
    • onion ring batter, seasoned works best
    • water
    • garlic salt, to your taste
    • onion salt, to your taste
    • Mexican seasoning, I use Goya which can be found at any Mexican food store
    • 2 cups light vegetable oil (for frying)


    1. 1
      I started with a package of onion ring batter, made as instructed on the box.
    2. 2
      To that I added the rest of the seasonings. Keep tasting the batter as you add the seasonings, so it is to your liking.
    3. 3
      Put the gizzards into the batter, and stir to make sure all pieces are thickly coated.
    4. 4
      In a large, deep frying pan. Put in about an inch of oil. Heat over high heat.
    5. 5
      Drop a small amount of batter in to test the oil.
    6. 6
      When the oil is ready, put in your gizzards. I cooked mine for about 10-15 minutes per side. The longer you cook them, the more tender they will get.
    7. 7
      Remove from oil to a plate with paper towels for draining.
    8. 8
      You can make as many pounds as you would like if you are feeding a lot or just a few.

      I love chicken gizzards! Stewed over noodles; tenderized with Coke; soaked in soy sauce; or however prepared... First love is batter fried; a bit chewy but still tender enough for my new dentures... Must try this recipe, 'cause I can already taste it in my mind...
