Utilizing the whole animal is sustainable and responsible. Chicken hearts are a good source of minerals as they contain a good amount of zinc and iron. You get one pack of certified organic pasture-raised free-range chicken hearts. The hearts are cleaned and ready to cook but may still have a bit of fat left on. You can either trim the fat off or leave it on - please see images. Because our organic chicken is free-range and pasture-raised they grow at different rates so the hearts will come in various sizes mixed together. The most popular way to eat chicken hearts in Japan is Yakitori (grilled chicken skewers).

I stir fry it with chives and bean sprouts. Very good!
I’m happy that my children could eat it. I cooked it together with the liver and it was delicious. 😋
Tasty and nutritious. I'm happy that you offer organic organ meats!
Loved this meat. It was fresh and delicious and knowing that it was ethically sourced makes it a no brainer to order again and again. thank you!
Translated from Japanese: I appreciate this because organic chicken heart is hard to find.
The fact that you care about animal welfare is also appealing.
