Gizzards And Rice

This is a Southern recipe that can be served as the main course or as a side dish with a light main course. This is not ideal for those who are repulsed by organ meat as many people are. If serving to a large crowd, be sure to have another choice.

Place chicken gizzards in a large saucepan with enough water to cover them. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Boil over medium-high heat for 10 minutes. Scoop out the gizzards and place on a cutting surface. Reserve the water. Chop gizzards into bite size pieces. Cook rice according to package directions using gizzard water.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute onion, garlic and mushrooms until onion is tender. Add gizzards, and saute for 5 more minutes. Stir in the chicken broth, onion soup mix, and tomatoes. Bring to a simmer, and cook until reduced by 1/2, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in rice, heat through and serve. Season with salt and pepper.
