Fried Chicken Gizzards


  • 1 ½ pounds chicken gizzards
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tablespoons seasoned salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder (Optional)
  • 2 cups vegetable oil for frying



  1. Trim excess fat and gristle from chicken gizzards. Rinse under cold running water.

  2. Place gizzards in a pot of cold water. Bring water and gizzards to a rolling boil; continue to boil for about 15 minutes. Strain gizzards using a colander. Allow to cool.

  3. Meanwhile, combine the flour, seasoned salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a plastic bag. Shake well to combine.

  4. Preheat vegetable oil in a skillet with a lid over medium-high heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  5. Thoroughly coat gizzards with flour mixture and shake off excess. Gently lay the coated gizzards in the hot oil. Cook until brown. Reduce heat to medium; cover skillet with lid and cook another 10 minutes. Remove to paper towels to drain.
