Fried Chicken Gizzard

Gizzard refers to a part of the digestive track of fowls; this is also sometimes called muscular stomach.

Chicken gizzards have established a place in different cuisines around the world. Two of the most common method of cooking gizzards are grilling and frying. This post is all about Fried Chicken Gizzards. I’ll be making another post for the grilled chicken gizzard or what we call “Inihaw na Balun-balunan”.

As you might notice, there are many recipes for fried chicken gizzard – I was able to try quite a number of them. This recipe is all about the good features that I liked on the different fried gizzard recipes that I tried. All I did was identify the things that I liked in each recipe and make-up a version that fits my taste.

To me, fried chicken gizzard should be crunchy in the outside while tender in the inside; a little bit juicy and tasty with a little kick of spice. That is what this recipe is all about.
