How to Pressure Cook Chicken Gizzards

By Andrine Redsteer

Chicken gizzards can be a bit tough and chewy. Some people prefer them that way. However, pressure cooking chicken gizzards is a great way to make them tender. When using a pressure cooker, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions in regard to releasing the pressure. Many pressure cooked chicken gizzard recipes, however, call for allowing a natural release of pressure.

Step 1

Rub the inside of the pressure cooker with 1/2 tsp. olive oil. If you don't have olive oil, any vegetable oil will do.

Step 2

Combine flour with seasoning. Mix one cup of flour with the seasoning of your choice. Dredge the gizzards in the seasoned flour and set them aside.

Step 3

Chop one onion. Over medium-high heat, saute the chopped onion and the gizzards for two to three minutes.

Step 4

Add water. For a recipe calling for a pound of gizzards, add one cup of water to the pressure cooker. Place the lid on the cooker.

Step 5

Cook the gizzards for 25 to 30 minutes. Read the gauge on your pressure cooker; the gizzards should be cooked under 15 lb. of pressure.
