Marinated Chicken Hearts with Smoked Sea Salt (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 08/07/2013 - Marinated chicken hearts are a common menu item in many bars in South America, especially in Brazil. But they don't get much plate time in the States. This recipe is meant to help change that.

Try these delicious little gems for your next BBQ, tailgate, or friendly cookout. They go great with a nice cold beer, and put a nice spin on the whole 'meat on a stick' tradition.

  • 2 to 3 pounds of chicken hearts
  • ½ cup of hot water
  • 1 lemon
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons kosher sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil for basting
  • dash smoked sea salt, optional
  • Lemon wedges as garnish 

Directions:
Wash and drain the chicken hearts.

Add one teaspoon of sea salt to the crushed garlic to make a paste. Add hot water to get a sauce. Let cool slightly.

Add lemon juice and a tablespoon of olive oil.

Add the chicken hearts to the lemon/garlic sauce and marinate for an hour.

Put the wooden sticks in a pot with cold water and let it absorb more water (cold not to burn).

Put 5 or 6 hearts on each stick and then return them to the marinade for another 15 minutes. Remove and drip dry. Coat with salt, pepper and paprika.

Baste the grill with a bit of olive oil and put the skewers on at medium-high flame.

Roll hearts often so that they are nicely browned, but not burned.

Serve with lemon wedges. Note: I like to give them a light dusting of smoke sea salt after they come off the grill, then hit them with the lemon.

Hi Matt, Thanks for taking the time to reply! I completely agree haha. Thanks for the links - I'll give them a read over! I think it was a mixture of the first time travelling with being gluten-free and the added bonus of the language barrier, it made me dread meal times when u...

Gluten is a protein smaller then blood,bleach does not kill it as it is not a germ. I would replace scratched pans. baking dishes, tubaware, wooden utensils, colanders, etc. Throw out crumby condiment jars and any non gluten-free spices and condiments. Cast Iron can be saved and some metal utensi...

It sounds like your hives resolved. I had a six month bout with them. Antihistamines really helped. My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.

My kid has Raynauds. It freaks her classmates out. She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state. It is autoimmune. She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws. I have Hashimoto?s and celiac disease. So, having multiple autoi...

Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten. Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc. Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon. Consider reading t...
