Fried chicken gizzards

Certainly! Fried chicken gizzards can be a delicious and flavorful dish. Here’s a simple recipe for fried chicken gizzards:


  • 1 pound chicken gizzards, cleaned and trimmed
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste for spice)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Marinate the gizzards:
    • Place the cleaned and trimmed chicken gizzards in a bowl.
    • Pour buttermilk over the gizzards, ensuring they are well coated.
    • Cover the bowl and let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight for best results.
  2. Prepare the dredge:
    • In a shallow dish, mix together flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper.
  3. Dredge the gizzards:
    • Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a heavy skillet to 350°F (175°C).
    • Take each gizzard from the buttermilk, allowing excess to drip off, and dredge it in the seasoned flour mixture, ensuring it’s coated thoroughly.
  4. Fry the gizzards:
    • Carefully place the dredged gizzards into the hot oil, a few at a time, to avoid overcrowding.
    • Fry until golden brown and crispy, usually about 5-7 minutes, depending on the size of the gizzards.
    • Use a slotted spoon to remove the fried gizzards and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  5. Serve:
    • Allow the fried gizzards to cool for a few minutes before serving.
    • Serve them hot as an appetizer or snack, optionally with your favorite dipping sauce.

Enjoy your crispy and flavorful fried chicken gizzards! Adjust the seasonings according to your taste preferences.
