I like Chicken Livers!

I love chicken livers, but about the only time I get to have them is when I am preparing a whole chicken. Occasionally I will but the tub of livers, but then I wait til I am baking a chicken to cook them. Here is why....

I cook my chicken whole and after about 45 minutes of cooking, a fair amount of chicken run off and butter have accumulated in the bottom of the pan. This is when I toss in my chicken livers, give a good stir to coat and a dash of S&P. 15 to 20 minutes later, got a pretty chicken and some wonderful chicken livers that I just cherish!

You guys got any other ideas on how I can prepare my chicken livers???? I honestly can make a meal out of these things and I don't have the slightest clue why I like them so much!!!!

The absolutely wondeful chicken liver comes when you sautee some onions in butter when onins are half done add livers + salt and pepper, and 5 minutes lattere your liver is done. It is absolutely should not be overcooked.
Then of course there is always famous choped liver, if you are interested in spending time.

Next time you roast a chicken, save the butter, fat and juices =from the pan and use them another time to cook a tub of livers.

yes fried is a great way with greens corn bread and hot sauce.
wrap in bacon and saute or broil
saute with onions and near the end a dash of brandy serve over rice
make real New Orleans dirty rice (has the green onions the bell peper the garlic and the livers chopped up)
A great Lasagna has white sauce with cheeses, and chicken livers. yum
Chopped liver (kosher style) cooked with onions and chicken fat (smaltz)

other ideas??

Sattie, I lightly dust my chicken livers in seasoned flour and fry them in butter and olive oil until they are nice and crispy brown. Then, I add some chicken broth/stock and some dried tarragon. Cover and simmer until the sauce begins to thicken. At that point, I add some dry white wine and simmer a few minutes longer. I usually serve it over rice.
