Absolutely delicious!!! i made this pretty much the same way, except i had to add more butter, plus i added some garlic and cilantro. DH absolutely loved this. on a scale of 1 to 10, he usually gives most of my recipes an 8, but this actually got a 9 out of him. and if you knew how reserved he was, you would realize what a great rating and complement this actually is. kudos to whoever created this!
This is a WONDERFUL recipe! Great gravy (as BarbryT states) and the flavor just gets better if reheat second day. It's been a while since I made these (I looked for the recipe again as I have a "hankering" for chicken livers tonight) but I seem to recall that I needed to add more butter than what recipe calls for. I served with mashed potatoes as this is what my DH requested! Thanks very much for posting this recipe!
Delightful. This is the best gravy for chicken livers I ever have had (much less made). And the livers themselves are perfect. I am delighted I tried this; it is entirely delicious.
