  1. Place chicken gizzards in a large saucepan, and add enough water to cover them. Cover, and bring to a boil. Boil over medium-high heat for 10 minutes. Drain, reserving the water, and chop into bite size pieces. Cook rice according to package directions using gizzard water.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute onion, garlic and mushrooms until onion is tender. Add gizzards, and saute for 5 more minutes. Stir in the chicken broth, onion soup mix, and tomatoes. Bring to a simmer, and cook until reduced by 1/2, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in rice, heat through and serve. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Really tasty recipe! The only thing I found odd was the cooking time for the gizzards --- in my experience you must cook gizzards much longer or they come out too tough. I cooked mine about an hour. Other wise great recipe, I made it with basmati rice. Also, tastes even better the next day, so it makes great leftovers!

Tasted good. Gizzards were tough. Cooked them 40 minutes, wasn't enough. Should have put them in the pressure cooker for 15 minutes. I will know better next time.

This is a wondrful recipe for leftover rice. I made just a few changes. I cooked the gizzards in the chicken broth. Used only 1/2 the onion mix. Didn't have canned tomatoes so I used 1 cup fresh chopped tomatoes. A stick to your ribs cozy dish.

this was an excellent meal. i followed the recipe to the letter with just one exception i cooked the gizzards in the crockpot for 3 hours first. i had it with cornbread and peas and carrots and my husband said he had never had gizzards like that before and that he liked it my 3 year old even at it up. so again great recipe thanks
