Keto Butter Fried Chicken Hearts Directions

Low Carb Butter Fried Chicken Hearts

butter chicken heartsOrgan meats, also called offal, are often an overlooked food because they sound unappealing to many; however, they are delicious if prepared correctly and are loaded with nutrition. Chicken hearts contain many B vitamins, iron, zinc and selenium. They are ideal for someone eating a keto carnivore diet where vegetable consumption is limited.

Pan Fried Chicken Hearts

Similar to many dishes that contain organ meats, chicken hearts should not be overcooked. Ideally you want to prepare you chicken hearts to a medium-rare consistency and never beyond. If they are overcooked, offal can become chewy and unpleasant tasting.

Chicken hearts need to be nicely browned on the outside but pink on the inside.

Where To Buy Chicken Hearts

I purchase my chicken hearts at the grocery store in the chicken area of the meat department. During the holidays, many home cooks are preparing giblet gravy and stuffing for their turkey dinners. You can easily find chicken hearts during this time. I like to stock up on chicken hearts over the holiday season and stick a few packages in my freezer.

If you can’t find any in the market, ask your local butcher. Many times they can locate some or set some aside for you.

Leftover Chicken Hearts

If you have leftover chicken hearts, you can store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days in a sealed container. To reheat, throw them back in your buttered skillet for a few minutes or pop them in the microwave, seal with plastic wrap, and cook at 50% for a minute or so.

If the idea of eating leftover organ meat doesn’t appeal to you, you can chop them up and add them to your gravy and make keto chicken fried steak the next day.

Consider Adding These Seasonings To Chicken Hearts

Oregano, red pepper flakes and garlic are wonderful seasonings to add to your butter fried chicken hearts.
