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 everyone. I was just wondering if anyone knew of an easy way to determine whether one's gastrointestinal reaction is to gluten or to fructan. Cheers, Lex

Thank you i have the colonoscopy on Tuesday and am dreading the prep more than anything lol. I think what ever the outcome I will try a gluten free diet to see if it helps with the symptoms. I've read so many stories of people going gluten free and symptoms such as depression, anxiety...

A positive on any one celiac test should lead to an endoscopy/biopsies being done by a gastroenterologist. You should keep eating gluten until the endoscopy is done.

Hi LexieA, It's perfectly ok to grieve or feel down because of a diagnosis of celiac disease. Feelings are not obligated to perform on command. But, over time you can adjust to the new diet reality and even like it. Getting used to eating mostly whole foods and more natural foods is a goo...
