    I absolutely LOVE chicken hearts! Usually, I boil them whole for about 5 minutes, then saute in lemon pepper, soy sauce, and worsteshire.

    My DS likes them too but the DW isn't interested. [​IMG]

    these sound great I love the health benefits of organ meat although sometimes it just doesn't taste good.

    While in Brazil we were treated to a dinner thrown by a bunch or graduate students. One of the dishes they served was grilled chicken hearts. They took about 100 (yea I know it's a lot) and put them on small skewers. Rolled them in very course rock salt and then grilled them over real charcoal (not briquettes). When done in about 2 minutes they knocked the salt of and served. They were AMAZINGLY good, tender, smokey and just plain yummy.
