Food Feature: Chicken Liver with Apples

This recipe is provided by our co-chapter leader, Victoria Schneider:

Chicken Liver Divine
Serves 4 or 5 people
Preparation time: 15 minutes

  • 1 lb of chicken livers (organic and local if possible)
  • 2 to 4 Golden Delicious or other sweet apple depending on the size
  • Butter, salt and pepper

Begin by gentle sautéing the cleaned chicken livers in a skillet just until they are light pink when cut. Salt and pepper them as you like. Remove from the pan and keep warm. Wipe out the skillet and put in fresh butter. Cut the apples into flat round slices (as if drying) and remove the seeds if you wish. Sauté the apples in the warm butter until golden but still firm.  As the apples are gently cooking, take the livers and keeping one end connected; slice them so they can be splayed out on the plate. When the apples are done, take a slice of apple and slide it into each one of the slices where you have cut into the liver. Remember to keep it connected so the finished liver looks something like an apple flower. Salt and pepper as desired. Work fast to keep them warm for serving. Place 3 to 4 on each plate.  The sweetness of the apple coupled with the rich flavor of butter creates a very complementary way to enjoy chicken liver.
