This is a healthier spin on a traditional takeout dish. Chicken hearts are mild and have a similar texture to muscle meat. This recipe focuses on clean ingredients and nutrient-dense foods for a healthier meal experience.
In a medium saucepan, combine all sauce ingredients over low heat until well incorporated. Set aside.
Pat the chicken hearts dry.
In a small bowl, combine white rice flour, corn starch, salt and pepper. Mix until combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk eggs.
To batter: Dip each heart into flour mixture, followed by egg mixture, then back into the flour mixture. Be sure to shake off excess flour after each round. Set aside. Repeat process for remaining hearts.
In a heavy bottom saute pan, over medium high heat, add avocado oil until it covers an inch to inch and half of the pan.
Pan fry chicken hearts until golden brown on both sides. Roughly 1 minute on each side.
In an oven safe dish, add the fried chicken hearts. Evenly pour sesame sauce over the hearts.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 20-30 minutes until the sauce is thickened.
