  • 1 pound chicken hearts

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Clean the chicken hearts: Remove any excess fat or connective tissues from the chicken hearts. Rinse them thoroughly under cold water and pat them dry with paper towels.
    2. Sauté the onions and garlic: Heat the olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, and sauté until they become translucent and fragrant.
    3. Add the chicken hearts: Increase the heat to medium-high and add the chicken hearts to the pot. Sauté them for about 5 minutes until they are lightly browned on all sides.
    4. Add the seasonings: Stir in the paprika, dried thyme, bay leaf, salt, and pepper. Cook for an additional minute to allow the flavors to develop.
    5. Add the liquids: Pour in the chicken broth and diced tomatoes with their juice. Stir everything together to combine.
    6. Simmer the stew: Bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and let it simmer gently for about 45 minutes to 1 hour. This will allow the flavors to meld and the chicken hearts to become tender.
    7. Adjust the seasoning: Taste the stew and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper if needed.
    8. Serve the stew: Remove the bay leaf from the pot. Ladle the chicken hearts stew into bowls and garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired. Serve the stew hot with crusty bread or over rice, mashed potatoes, or pasta.
