Creamed Chicken Hearts - With Mushrooms
This is what I would literally call a hearty meal! The first time I tried chicken hearts, I didn't really like them, but obviously I just had to figure out a good recipe. So, this is one of my favourite ways to prepare them. It is an easily prepared high fat meal and pretty saturating.

Creamed Chicken Hearts
Instructions
  1. Cut chicken hearts into slices and start to fry them in a big pan at medium heat
  2. In the meanwhile, cut the onions and mushrooms
  3. Put onions into the pan and fry everything, until it gets a nice roasting flavor
  4. Add mushrooms and fry for another 5-10 minutes
  5. Pour some water into the pan and let everything simmer for 25-30 minutes to get the hearts tender. This also softens their taste
  6. Add cream & seasonings and let simmer for a few more minutes
Recipe Notes

I, personally, wanted to have a sort of cream soup in this case, therefore I didn't reduce the cream that much. Of course, you can cook it, until you have a thick sauce.
