Hmmm... Ok, so this pic is truly one of the most unappetizing pics I have probably ever posted. Sorry about that. The arugula looks tasty at least, right? Yikes.
Anywho. Chicken hearts are a fantastic source of nutrients. They are HEARTS after all! Containing very high quantities of the following nutrients, you really can't argue with 'em:
And for those of you who aren't big fans of liver, hearts have a much milder flavor and are also way less chewy and dense. I suspect broiling or grilling them would be amazeballs.
I picked up about 1 lb and three quarters of the stuff at Whole Paycheck for about $1.40. Certainly enough for two people, with leftovers for the dog. At such a low price point, may as well give it a shot right? Preparation is a snap.
I know it sounds weird. But when you eat a paleo, primal, or ancestral diet, focusing on getting lots of protein, you really have to branch out sometimes. And I am not a big steak eater, so that basically means poultry, fish, seafood, and some pork occasionally. Sh*t gets old eventually. So what the heck? Try something new.
Paleo Chicken Hearts
1.5-2 lbs chicken hearts
1 yellow onion
EVOO, or ghee
Saute your yellow onion in EVOO until its translucent. Season with salt and a bit of pepper. Add in your chicken hearts, and season liberally with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cook for about 7-9 minutes until hearts are completely cooked through.
Easy peasy folks. You've got nothing to lose! Try it out!
