Chicken hearts chargrilled on a skewer are a must have in Brazilian barbecues. As they cook fast and are practical to serve, they are one of the first things to come out of the pit, alongside sausage. On the every-day table, chicken hearts are used in homemade, simple dishes as well as in more sophisticated ones, using different techniques: roasted, grilled, pressure cooked or even in stroganoffs, risottos and pasta sauces.
