Chicken Hearts (Frozen)

Stewed chicken hearts

The small size of chicken hearts make them a great candidate for use in a variety of recipes, from soups to pan-fried dishes…even Japanese-style Yakitori.  Some people soak their hearts in buttermilk to tenderize them before cooking.  In Brazil, chicken hearts are considered a delicacy, and are consumed in such high quantities that it’s the only part of the chicken that they need to import to meet the high demand.  They’re considered the most popular appetizer in many Brazilian restaurants.
