  • Trim the fat from the chicken hearts and cut them into quarters. Cut the bell pepper and onion into strips of similar length, and grate the carrot using a fine grater.

  • In a bowl, mix together sugar, rice vinegar, soy sauce, potato starch, and chili pepper.

  • Heat a bit of vegetable oil in a pan and fry the chicken hearts for about 2 minutes. If they don't fit in one layer, fry them in two batches. Transfer the hearts to a plate and in the same pan, fry the onion, bell pepper, and grated carrot for 4 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic, stir, and fry for another minute. Pour the sauce into the pan and return the chicken hearts. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring continuously. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

  • Boil the pasta in salted water according to the package instructions. Drain the water and pat the pasta dry with a colander. Mix the boiled pasta and chicken hearts, then add green peas and fresh basil leaves and stir again. Serve and enjoy!


  • Make sure to trim any excess fat from the chicken hearts to prevent a greasy dish.

  • Chicken hearts cook quickly, so make sure to keep an eye on them to prevent them from becoming tough and chewy.

Bon Appetit!
