Pan fried chicken livers
This simple liver recipe is easy and quick to dish up. Pan fried chicken livers with onion and bacon served with rice and ketchup, what could be more yummy?! Chicken livers are a good source of iron and B12 and vitamin A, making them good for anaemia and eye health. But be aware, you should always make sure they are properly cooked.
One of my favourites as a kid
This is a meal I remember from being a child, which was one of my own favourites. My mum would make this on school nights and I would devour it (as I still do). My problem where we are here in Ireland has been where to buy chicken livers. Locally they have been difficult to source fresh.
However last week we travelled to Cork and picked some up in the English Market. Wow, what a place! They had everything there. I whipped up this dish in about 20 minutes when we got home. Cheap and easy.
Chicken livers are also great for homemade pate. When I get my hands on some more I will make a batch.
The combination of the strong taste of the liver, the saltiness of the bacon and the delicious onions is just perfection, but I must admit it is one of the meals I like that really is vastly improved with tomato ketchup. We, of course, go out of our way to buy Heinz, as we love it, so that is what we use (we have no affiliation).
This meal is great for kids (well, I loved it as a kid) but perhaps that’s because the ketchup is there?!
I used to love it anyway, I hope you do too. If your kids are fussy (like mine) and do not like onions, just leave the onions out. It is all about the fried liver anyway.
