Rose's Fried Gizzards

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by ChamoritaMomma

This is one of my hubby's favorite "beer chasers". He enjoys having it during football season with a cold bottle of Corona. But you can enjoy it anytime, and believe me, you can't have just one piece.

You should NEVER discard the hearts, you cook them the same way as the gizzards.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First you want to prep gizzards for cooking. Remove gizzards from container and discard chicken hearts if they're present. Cut away excessive fat and gristle, then wash gizzards thoroughly under running cold water.
  2. Using a pressure cooker, I have an electric one, which makes things so easy. Add the gizzards and the next 3 ingredients. Add just enough water to cover the gizzards. Bring up to pressure for 10 minutes.
  3. When done, drain completely in a colander. In another bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients, except the oil and blend well.
  4. In a deep fryer or skillet, heat the oil. Dredge the gizzard pieces in flour mixture, coating well. Fry in batches until golden and crisp.
  5. Drain on paper towel and serve hot. I prefer to serve these with sliced jalapenos or tartar sauce on the side for dipping. ENJOY!
  6. Variation: If you don't have a pressure cooker, another option is to boil the gizzards. Boil for about 30 minutes to tenderize.
