Ingredients

  • 1 pound Chicken Hearts ventricles, veins, or fat removed
  • 2 tablespoons Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Instructions

  • Place the hearts in a bowl, sprinkle salt and then fill with water until they are just submerged. Stir to combine then place in the refrigerator for 3 hours.
  • Remove from the fridge and drain the water. Then add the rosemary, thyme and olive oil and let marinate for about 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  • Heat a large fry pan over high heat. Then add the hearts and marinade to the pan and cook until just cooked through about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Make sure the pan is large enough so that the hearts are all in a single layer. You don’t want to crowd the pan otherwise the hearts won’t cook evenly. You’ll know when the hearts are done because they may start to burst.

Notes

  • Don’t skip the salty water step. This helps tenderize the hearts.
  • Make sure the pan is large enough so that the hearts are all in a single layer. You don’t want to crowd the pan otherwise the hearts won’t cook evenly.
