chicken oysters - who knew?

Yesterday I had lunch at a schmancy hotel and one of the specials was "chicken oysters" on a bed of lentils. At first it sounded like poultry private parts, but of course the oyster of the chicken is the little round part under the backbone. I had just never seen them served as their own dish before. I was a little surprised when they came fried, but it was a very light coating of flour and they were quite tasty. It reminded me of a slightly less flavorful fried sweetbreads dish.
Are chicken oysters a common dish in restaurants these days?
