Caloric Values, Single Serving

One cup of cooked Chicken Gizzards contains about 223 calories.

If you have never prepared a roasted turkey (or whole chicken) at home, then you'll need to check the cavity of the bird for the gizzard.

It's generally packaged with the heart and liver inside of heavy white paper bag. You'll also want to remove the neck which is also found in the bird's cavity before roasting.

You can either toss these items or prepare a gravy with them. The neck can be pan roasted in the oven and the drippings scraped from the pan to use in making rich soups and other tasty recipes.
