How to Make Grandma's Classic Stewed Chicken Sweetbreads

  1. First, we clean the chicken gizzards by removing excess fat and wash them well. This is a crucial step as proper cleaning of the gizzards ensures a smooth texture and delicious flavor.
  2. Then, in a large pot, add a generous splash of olive oil and heat over medium heat.
  3. Next, peel and finely chop the onion and garlic cloves. We also peel and cut the carrots into slices. Add these ingredients to the pot and sauté until the onion is translucent.
  4. Add the chicken gizzards to the pot and cook until golden brown on all sides.
  5. At this point, add the paprika, bay leaves, salt and pepper. Stir well so that all the ingredients are mixed and the spices permeate the gizzards.
  6. Pour the white wine into the pot and let the alcohol evaporate for a few minutes.
  7. Finally, we cover the gizzards with the chicken broth and let everything simmer for about an hour, or until the gizzards are tender.
  8. Before serving, sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley to add a touch of freshness and color to the dish.

Top Tips for Cooking Chicken Gizzards

For a more intense flavor, you can marinate the gizzards in white wine and garlic for a few hours before cooking.

This dish is even better the next day when the flavors have had a chance to mingle.

I started cosmorecipes in 2020 during the time we were cooped up at home. Having so much free time I spent a lot of time in the kitchen trying different dishes. So I decided to mix cooking with my other great passion: web programming. That's why I decided to open this blog where I post the different recipes that I'm cooking.
