Slow Cooker Chicken Gizzards & Hearts


This is the best tasting Chicken Gizzards & Hearts I have ever had! I have never made them in the slow cooker before and it is the only way I will ever make them again. The process was very easy but it takes most of the day. I put mine in the slow cooker around 8:30 am and I ate them at 6:30 pm. They couldn’t have been more tender and flavorful! Chicken Gizzards and Hearts are so cheap to buy and very low in calories. The broth that was left over was such a beautiful color and delicious so I will be using it for something else!






Rinse the gizzards and hearts.

If the gizzards have not been cut up

at the store, slice each one in half.

Mine was already cut up.



Place the carrots and onions into

the bottom of the slow cooker.



Place the gizzards and hearts

on top of the veggies.



Salt and pepper to taste.



Pour the beef broth into the slow cooker.



Put the lid on and cook on low for 8-10 hours.

Using a slotted spoon, remove the veggies, chicken

gizzards and hearts to a plate or bowl and serve.

    • You absolutely can use either one. I just like the flavor the beef gives it. This way of cooking gizzards and hearts (with either broth) is my favorite! The taste was amazing and they were so tender..YUM!


  1. I know for some people but I still love to cook. A lot of times I cook way too much because I am used to catering. It’s just me and my boyfriend and I have not mastered the art of cooking for just two people yet.

  2. What a lovely surprise, indianeskitchen! I feel blessed that you have decided to ‘follow’ my blog on “Conversations With God Using Scripture.” You have also introduced me to your recipes and they look and ‘smell’ delicious. Unfortunately, I have just moved in an 55+ Apartment building and have downsized tremendously. None the less, the building sponsors ‘Happy Hour’ twice weekly and sometimes require us residents to bring ‘pot luck’ dishes. One of your recipes will be my first dish to submit. Will let you know the attendants response. Thanks again.

    • Hi Karen! I like mashed potatoes and corn with mine. You can do any vegetables or potato you want. Just think of this as the main meat like if you made chicken, pork or beef. I hope this helps!
