Love a Chicken Heart

I think it was Diego from Sao Paulo who first introduced us to barbecued chicken hearts. Since the weather is fabulous at the moment, just right for a bbq, I thought I would share them with you too.
Chicken Hearts on the barbecue are really nice. They taste like little morsels of steak. Sure if you think about it being a chicken heart, it can make you feel a bit funny but you get over that pretty quick once you have tasted them.
To prepare chicken hearts for your next barbecue, marinade them for a few hours with oil, garlic, salt and pepper. That is all the prep done and then just cook ’em up when you’ve got the barbecue going. The internet offers other marinade recipes you can try once you have found the chicken heart love, like sherry, sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger and garlic or the intriguing adobo sauce and lemon or lime.
Brazilians have other cool ideas for barbecuing too. Another recipe I really liked for the end of the barbecue was green bananas (normal bananas not plaintains), thrown on the barbecue until they went soft and they were split open and sugar and cinnamon sprinkled in on the hot banana. Lucy loved this, especially with some cream or ice cream.
