The first usual reaction that I have from clients is Yuk! No thank you!
Chicken liver can be difficult to eat due to the viscous texture and the weird taste of it.
First of all, let's talk about its nutritious values. Chicken livers are good for your health, because they're high in protein and have a rich store of folate, which is important for fertility and helps prevent certain birth defects. Livers are also loaded with iron to give you energy and a treasure trove of certain B vitamins, most notably B12. This nutritional profile makes them a good choice for anyone prone to anaemia. Chicken livers are also one of the top sources of vitamin A, which helps eye health. However, the Food Standards Authority advises pregnant women not to eat liver because too much vitamin A can harm the baby.
I made this delicious recipe to try... I used fajitas spices to cover the taste a bit and added vegetables to soften the texture.
Ingredients: 1 pack of chicken liver 1 onion 2 tbsp of fajitas mix 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper 2 carrots 2 tbsp of olive oil 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper
Parsley and Basil Instructions: Wash the chicken livers, get rid of the fat if needed and cut them in half
Pat dry with kitchen paper
Slice the onion and the carrots In a big frying pan, heat the olive oil, add the carrots and onions and stir until it's golden and tender Reduce the heat and add the livers
Cook for about 5 mins and add the fajitas spice and cayenne pepper Check and stir the livers. Add black pepper and cook for another 4-5 minutes.
Salt (only at the very end)
Sprinkle some fresh parsley or basil if you have on the top for dressing
Can be eaten with rice or served with fresh white bread
