Chicken gizzards can be a bit tough and chewy. Some people prefer them that way. However, pressure cooking chicken gizzards is a great way to make them tender. When using a pressure cooker, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions in regard to releasing the pressure. Many pressure cooked chicken gizzard recipes, however, call for allowing a natural release of pressure.

  1. 1

    Rub the inside of the pressure cooker with 1/2 tsp olive oil. If you don't have olive oil, any vegetable oil will do.

  2. 2

    Combine flour with seasoning. Mix one cup of flour with the seasoning of your choice. Dredge the gizzards in the seasoned flour and set them aside.

  3. 3

    Chop one onion. Over medium-high heat, sauté the chopped onion and the gizzards for two to three minutes.

  4. 4

    Add water. For a recipe calling for a pound of gizzards, add one cup of water to the pressure cooker. Place the lid on the cooker.

  5. 5

    Cook the gizzards for 25 to 30 minutes. Read the gauge on your pressure cooker; the gizzards should be cooked under 6.8kg. of pressure.
