In America organ meat, aka offal, is mostly thought of as the “awful” leftover bits and pieces of an animal. But throughout history and even today, cultures in places like China, Scotland and South America, just to name a few, have thought organs to be some of the choicest cuts. The chicken bits most commonly eaten are livers, hearts and gizzards. Livers are great on the grill but not so much in soup, so I will mainly be focusing on the latter two today.
