  1. I was going to give to my brothers dog but he said dog food only.

    1. Eat them as a snack while the chicken is cooking.

      1. Liver gets sauteed with onion and garlic, a bit of sherry to deglaze, and a few pinches of whatever herbs are handy. Chop coarsely and spread on crostini and serve as appetizer for the chicken that is about to be dinner. Other giblets are saved to add to the carcass to make a few cups of stock or broth. Most of that is usually used up in a day or two.

        1. throw them in a bag with other necks, wing tips, etc, and toss into the freezer. When you have a decent amount, add them to stock.

          1. I feed them to my cats.
