    Question Need a new way to cook liver

    Shop Now
    I picked up about a pound of chicken livers at the store today and am just wondering if anyone out there has a good recipe. I've had them fried, and of course with onion, but want to branch out. Any ideas?

    I used to just cook all the organs that came with the whole chicken at the same time. Just threw some melted butter, paprika, salt, pepper, maybe some parsley and cook at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Was a nice little snack while I waited for the rest of the chicken to finish cooking.

    I always go the short/easy road. Boil them with whatever seasonings I like and eat them like a soup.

    My Easy Shiksa's Version of Chopped Chicken Liver

    Sweet vermouth - not a lot, maybe 1/4-1/2 cup
    ch. livers
    onions to taste
    s&p to taste

    Saute everything 'til livers are cooked through and vermouth is pretty much gone. Let cool. Mash with fork, or if you want it really creamy, put in food processor.

    Chill in fridge. Spread on an innocuous tasting veggie (celery, fennel, baby bok choy).

    The title of your recipe made me laugh out loud. Awesome! And thanks for the recipe. I've always bought my chopped liver in the past. Not anymore.

    I hope that works out for you. I usually make twice as much as I need because I'm always going to eat a portion of it (at least) while it's still warm and unmashed.

    Cut bacon strips in half and wrap around chicken liver, either bake or sauté until bacon looks cooked..real tasty.

    Organic Chicken Livers with Balsamic Glaze.Saute some onions in butter then add chicken livers and saute until your desired doneness. Remove the onions and liver from the pan. Add a good splash of balsamic vinegar to the pan and more butter to taste... reduce this sauce a bit to thicken. Return onions and liver to pan, toss, heat through and enjoy! Yum!
