One cup of diced Chicken Hearts contains about 268 calories.

The heart is often one of the ingredients used to prepare southern 'Giblet Gravy' during the holiday season.

My mother used to chop up onions and celery, sear them off in vegetable oil and then she would add the raw giblet, heart and gizzard to the pot - and at times, the neck.

After the meat was fully cooked she would thicken the broth with cornstarch and water mixed together. If the broth wasn't rich enough she would add some that had been cooked away from the turkey.
