If you’ve ever had chicken gizzards that were so chewy that you felt you would be pulling your teeth out and that it really wasn’t worth the hassle of even eating them?

Recipe For Making Tender Chicken Gizzards
- 1 pound chicken gizzards (rinsed in cool water)
- 2 cups buttermilk divided (1 cup for marinade and 1 cup for dipping prior to dredging)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- oil for deep frying
- hot sauce for serving (optional)
Place rinsed chicken gizzards in a bowl of buttermilk and allow to marinate for at least four hours or overnight.
After the gizzards have completed the marinate process rinse and simmer.
Place gizzards in a pot of water and bring to a hard boil. Once the water reached a hard boil turn heat to medium and simmer for about 15 minutes.

Now that the gizzards have cooked drain water and set aside to cool while making the dredge.
Combine flour and spices in a gallon bag and set aside.
Prepare to Fry Gizzards
Place cooled gizzards in a bowl of buttermilk and coat evenly.
Then place gizzards in baggie of dredge (flour and spices). Close off bag and shake gizzards until completely coated.
Gently place gizzards in deep fryer or a fryer that is set to 325 degrees fahrenheight. Be extremely careful to not splash hot oil out of the pot. For this recipe I used the Electric Deep Fryer FryDaddy.
Deep fry chicken gizzards for about 5 minutes or until golden brown.
Carefully remove gizzards from hot oil and place on a plate covered with paper towels.
Serve chicken gizzards with your favorite hot sauce and enjoy! I like to serve with Franks RedHot Hot Buffalo Wings Sauce.
