Best comfort food and a great appetizer!


  1. Pour oil in large, deep cast iron skillet or 4 quart saucepan to reach depth of 2". Heat oil over medium-high heat until deep fry thermometer registers 340 degrees.
  2. Soak livers in buttermilk for 5 minutes.
  3. Combine flour, salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning in a small baking dish.
  4. Drain livers; drredge each liver in flour mixture, shaking off excess flour; transfer to a plate.
  5. Fry livers in batches until golden brown, 3-4 minutes. Transfer livers to a paper towel-lined plate. Serve with hot sauce like Frank's or Crystal, blue cheese dressing and/or ranch dressing.

Absolutely delicious! After our outing to the Pumpkin Patch, we came home to relax with an appetizer and for some reason, chicken livers just sounded yummy. I happened to have chicken livers in the fridge (truthfully, I was going to use them for dog treats:~D)so I searched for pan-fried chicken livers. Imagine my surprise when it was my sister-in-law's recipe!!! My sweetie and I loved thyem....I deep fried in a pan on the stove and next time I will use my DeLonghi Deep Flyer - much neater. Great flavor, buttermilk is a great idea and we dipped in chunky blue cheese dressing!

P.S. Dog treat Recipe to be posted soon!
