    FlemishMinx's Note:

    If you are reading this, then you probably like chicken livers! This recipe, however, may convert the "others", namely husbands, boyfriends, wives or girlfriends who don't. I must admit I would never have thought of this combination, but the balsamic vinegar tempers the earthy taste of the livers. These are equally good cold, served as appetizers.

      Very nice recipe for chicken livers! I made it as directed but sprinkled the cooked livers with garlic salt and pepper when I removed them from the pan. I like how the balsamic and butter glazed them and the balsamic flavor was really complimentary.

      Excellent chicken livers! I did add plenty garlic and sage and would maybe double the butter and balsamico next time, for more sauce.

      I had some leftover liver after making cat food today and came upon this recipe. Mmmm, it was so good. I could barely tell it was liver. The sauce was delicious. I can't wait to make this again.
