Fried Chicken Gizzards step by step
- Mix egg, buttermilk and dash of water in a bowl.
- Prepare cooking oil, heat to about 350°, My suggestion is to deep fry them..
- Boil chicken gizzards for about 5-10 minutes before frying. I used some seasonings in the boil as I was also preparing chicken stock. After gizzards have finished boiling remove from water and allow them to cool..
- Once cool, begin to season gizzards to your liking. Once seasoned dip pieces in egg mixture then flour (you can repeat this step for extra battered gizzards).
- Place chicken gizzards in deep fryer. Cook about 10 minutes (they will float when they are done).
- Remove from deep fryer, drain on paper towels and enjoy. Hot sauce and ranch dressing go well with them..
