I like yakitori chicken hearts. And I like scrambled eggs. But the reason I LOVE these chicken heart scrambled eggs, is it seems like a real psychological bitchslap to the beak to chickens everywhere. “OH YEAH,” I think to myself, “Well how about if I take dozens of your most vital organ and simmer them in the scrambled essence of your failed nonviable offspring!?!” Ha. Stupid chickens. [Extra Crispy]
