Fried Chicken Liver Recipe
Savory and pleasantly spiced by bright green chili peppers, these fried chicken livers are best served alongside a gravy made from mineral-rich chicken stock. My son, just four, can eat an entire plate by himself. I served these once, as snack, and he begged his friends to try them – telling them, “You have to eat the whole chicken: livers, feet and all.” It is good for you, so enjoy.
