Chicken Igado

Chicken Igado Rice
Chicken Igado. Some of OPC’s readers are asking if igado can be cooked using chicken instead of the usual pork. Today I tried to cook igado using chicken gizzard, liver, hearth and breast, the result was a great my chicken igado was comparable to the pork igado version.

Chicken Igado

To make the dish I used equal parts of chicken gizzard, liver and breast. Cooking is basically the same with my pork igado except that I have to parboil the gizzards which requires more cooking time to make it tender.
