Default chicken livers that actually taste good



Advertise Here

i'm not fan of chicken livers, but i don't want to waste them when i get them in a chicken, and they are a cheap source of protein (a pound of chicken livers goes for about 1 dollar).

here is how to make them tasty. it looks like a lot of work but it's not, it just takes lots of typing to explain. trust me on this.

remove the sinews from the livers (the hardest part of this whole production), and soak in milk for a few hours (4 seems to be about right).

rinse livers in cold water and pat dry.

set up a "production line" of:

1) bowl of flour
2) 2 eggs beaten with some water
3) dry crumb mix* (explained at end)

you can do this individually or thread the livers onto kebabs.

season livers with black pepper. dip in flour, then eggs, then dry crumb mix.

fry in a pan until medium-rare (about 5 minutes, turning them halfway through). they should give a bit to the touch.

i've also deep fried them in a pot of oil.

sprinke salt on them while hot and serve with:
mayonnaise mixed with lemon zest and chopped chives.

i've served this to people who don't like liver and they liked it. it is currently the only way i'll eat chicken liver.



*dry crumb mix

you are gonna mix bread crumbs, lemon zest, grated Parmesan cheese, and "dukkah." dukkah can be used on all sorts of stuff, and here is how to make it.

1/2 cup hazelnuts (toasted)
1/4 cup coriander seeds (toasted)
3 tablespoons sesame seeds (toasted)
2 tablespoons cumin seeds (toasted)
1 tablespoon black peppercorns (toasted)
1 teaspoon fennel seeds (toasted)
1 teaspoon dried mint leaves
1 teaspoon salt

mix all that in a mortar and pestle or food processor until its a crumb mix. don't let it become a paste. it's good on scrambled eggs, on bread with oil, on lots of stuff.

Another easy way is to make stroganoff. Cut up the livers, fry them adding fresh mushrooms if you want, add a can of cream of mushroom soup, add canned mushrooms here if you want those instead, add sour cream to taste. Serve over rice or noodles.

by the time you add the oil, flour, milk etc to make something like that palatable, not to mention they're deep fried, what are you really saving?

i like to use corn flake crumbs w/flour...lil' bit S/P..garlic pwdr/curry pwdr....mix well (2 parts CF 1 part flour..)

makes a great bread crumb mix!!
good on fried chicken too.. makes a killer golden crunchy skin!! (pork chops too)
don't forget to throw a mess of sliced sweet onion in theer too while frying.....

The best chicken livers I ever had were smoked in some type of butter sauce.

My mom used to put them in a white gravy and serve over biscuits or toast. That was pretty good too.
