Chicken Liver Pate

READY IN: 24hrs 15mins
Recipe by IngridH

This is from Tyler's Ultimate. I love pate, but I'm the only one in the house who will eat it, so up until now, I've never made it myself. This recipe looked so approachable for a normal home cook, that I decided I could do it. I hope you will too! Prep time is hands-on time, Cooking time is chilling in the fridge.

Very delicious! I can't keep many foods down due to multiple stomach surgeries but this is fantastic!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse the livers and pat dry.
  2. Cover with the Port, and chill for 2 hours.
  3. Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter in a medium skillet.
  4. Add the shallots, garlic, and thyme. Cook over medium low heat, stirring, until softened but not browned, about 3 or 4 minutes.
  5. Remove the livers from the Port (reserve the Port) and add to the skillet. Continue to cook, without browning, until the livers just start to change color, another 3 to 4 minutes.
  6. Add the Port and simmer for 2 minutes.
  7. Place the liver mixture in a blender, and puree until smooth.
  8. Add 3 more tablespoons of butter, and puree again until smooth.
  9. Add the cream, and pulse until it is incorporated.
  10. Season with salt and pepper.
  11. Spoon into a 3 cup container (terrine, loaf pan, mason jar) and smooth the surface of the pate.
  12. Chill for 1 hour, until it just starts to firm up.
  13. Melt the remaining butter, and pour over the top of the pate, covering it completely.
  14. Refrigerate overnight or up to a week.
  15. Serve on toasted baguette slices or other crusty bread.
