    My husband has ALWAYS loved chicken gizzards, whereas I enjoy chicken livers. I've never cared much for the gizzards but THIS recipe was phenomenal. He loves them! And, besides having to hunt down the creole seasoning, the recipe was easy. THANK YOU, THANK YOU. This is DEFINITELY a keeper. If my husband could rate this, he would give it FIVE STARS!!!!

    I tried these gizzards over the weekend. Lots of spices/ingredients, but what wonderful flavor they had, and oh, so tender. I will definately make these again. Thanks for posting!

    We had a chicken BBQ recently and when we got the cases of chicken home, the gizzards were still in the boxes. The guys wanted them cooked up, so I found this recipe. I'm basing this review on the comments from everybody, and from the smell of the brine before I added the gizzards to it. It was fabulous!! Everyone loved them! I'm not a fan of gizzards so needless to say, I didn't taste them. However, I am going to make the broth and cook some chicken in it the way the recipe specifies. The gizzards were very soft and tender, not dry. It was the hit of the party, so if you are into gizzards, try them...they all said it was great!!

    I can see how this would taste amazing, but you definitely need to use less Italian dressing, maybe even 8 ounces and replace the missing liquid with a chicken or veggie both. The dressing over powers everything, makes it almost sour. Potential 5 Star. Gizzards aren't my thing, but these were perfect if only a different taste.

I was born and raised in Pueblo, Colorado. I moved to Corpus Christi, Texas in 1998. I enjoy camping, sewing and gardening. My husband and I love to cook. We are always trying new recipes and adding to old ones. We BBQ every weekend and always have a crowd of friends over to taste our creations! Usually we are watching Nascar and/or football while we BBQ! I am a Denver Bronco Fan, but I also like the Houston Texans.
