Today, I have a treat for all you gizzard lovin’ folks out there. I know there may not be many of you. But, for those of you who enjoy biting into those little meaty pillows of yumminess, you’re going to love my AIP Chicken Gizzards with Okra Gravy Recipe.
You see, in the Cajun culture, we try to use as many parts of the animal we’re eating as possible. We also like to combine those bits and pieces with various vegetables from our gardens. One of those vegetables being okra. We use okra in so many Cajun dishes; okra gumbo, fried okra, pickled okra. The list goes on and on.
In my AIP Chicken Gizzards with Okra Gravy, I combine the gizzards and okra in a flavorful gravy. You can serve this gravy over your favorite paleo veggie mash or “noodles”. I usually serve mine over cauliflower/turnip mash or sweet potato “noodles”. I love the mixture of flavors from the turnip or sweet potato and this dish.
If offal (organ meat) is not your thang, have no fear. You could easily exchange the gizzards for chunks of chicken instead. That way, you’d still be able to enjoy the amazing okra gravy. Just remember to brown your chicken with one tablespoon of fat first. After that, just follow the rest of the recipe.
I hope you enjoy my AIP Chicken Gizzards with Okra Gravy recipe. I have two more posts scheduled for you this week. The next post will be my review and giveaway of The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook by Mickey Trescott, NTP. If you don’t already own this awesome cookbook, you’re definitely going to want to enter my giveaway. I’ll release this post on Wednesday.
Then, on Friday, I have a post including the best AIP websites on the entire internet. If you’re thinking of starting AIP, or have just started, you’re going to want to check out this post.
