We haven't had these in awhile and I got hungry for them, so I fried up some chicken livers and gizzards for dinner.

into the buttermilk to soak overnight

egg wash and flour seasoned with Kosher salt and lots of cracked black pepper.
I'll drain them from the buttermilk and then dredge them in the flour. Let them set a few minutes and then into the egg wash and back through the flour. Let them set in the frig for 1/2 hour and then back through the flour before frying.

:thumbs up: love livers and gizzards. Resturant just north of here on the interstate sells them by the lb. Some times I just have to have a fix, but home made are better.:drooling:

Livers & gizzards are great! Those look awsome!

Dillons, groc store in ks, has great gizzards....when they are fresh. They sell them fried in the deli section. HHHmMMMMM! Hate to drive 30mi one way to buy some......but just may have to do that.
