This meal may seem a bit “unconventional,” but this dish does not disappoint! Economical, easy to make, and tasty, the flavors and textures of the gizzards (aka pippuks) and the creamed bean base is delicious. If the beans are not your thing, simply skip that step and serve the chicken gizzards over rice. This recipe yields 60 servings and is meant to feed a crowd. You can decrease the amounts as needed.

It turned out delicious! I didn’t soak the navy beans and it was fine. I made 1/6 of this recipe.
