|Chicken gizzards and hearts are great! Chicken muscle meat is lower in minerals like iron and zinc than red meats like beef, pork and lamb and the gizzards and hearts are higher.
If this is a one time deal why not very gently simmer them in some water until cooked through and use a stick blender or food processor to chop them up for you? Then just mix a spoonful of that 'gravy' with the usual food. If your dogs tend to get soft poop when they get new food be sure to subtract a little kibble when you mix in the giblets. If it is enough that you want to save for later you could put it into an ice cube tray and freeze for later use.
If your dogs have iron guts so you never need to transition slowly you could add 25% grain/25% veggies or just 50% veggies to the meat when you cook it. Be sure the grain and veggies get very well cooked. If you want to make this a pretty nicely balanced diet then add in 1/2 tsp of powdered eggshell for calcium per pound of meat. If you were going to continue to feed this then add in a bit of liver and I don't know what else to completely balance it.
My guy doesn't digest cooked cartilage! Sassy could, he cannot. I would need to chop up the meats quite small and hope that would work.
