Izakaya At Home! Japanese Staple Chicken Gizzards “SUNAGIMO” Nibbles Recipes

Japanese Staple Chicken Gizzards SUNAGIMO Nibbles Recipes Food & Recipes

My top 3 chicken gizzards finger food recipes for Home Izakaya.

Whether you’re throwing a party or planning ahead for an Izakaya date at home, these nibbles will win by authentic Japanese SUNAGIMO recipes that you can’t get anywhere else.

“Home Izakaya” refers to the drinking party at home in my blog, that the idea comes from the Japanese new drinking culture term, “UCHINOMI” (ウチ呑み).

“Sunagimo” literally means chicken gizzards in Japanese, and Japanese drink lovers love chicken gizzards with crunchy textures.

We love its texture, so we even don’t try to tenderize it.

Chicken gizzards are so reasonable and have addictive textures.

These recipes are also super-easy to make.

How To Prepare Chicken Gizzards

Do You Need To Wash Chicken Gizzards?

Most gizzards are sold partially cleaned, so you normally only need to rinse off excess blood and debris.

Trim Silverskin?

Silverskin has a charming crunchy texture, so it’s really unnecessary to remove it. It will tenderize when cooked for a long time like making confit.

If you desire to remove it, slide a sharp knife between the meat and silverskin and cut it off.

How To Cut Chicken Gizzards?

  1. Cut the gizzard in half, slicing all the way through until you have two separate pieces.
  2. Cut the gizzard in half and slice the meat nugget up into small pieces for sauteed/ pan-fried, which is the easiest way and saves lots of time to cook it though.
  3. Cut the gizzard in half and make 4-5 slits on the meat nugget on the silver skin side.

Sauteed Chicken Gizzards

Having sauteed chicken gizzards on the menu is really normal in Japan, and I believe you’re not turning your head since you’re reading this post.

Actually, the chicken gizzard is an excellent weight-loss menu/ saving budget menu.

The gizzard is actually the nutritious part of a chicken. It is high in protein. In fact, it is also low in fat, and high in vitamins.

I guarantee that these recipes are really delicious.

I am still with you, by the way, my hubby who is from the US and has been living in the US has never touched my chicken gizzards.

(But he cooks chicken gizzard confit for me. It’s really good. )
