Recipe by awakentheenigma

From "American Regional Cooking" from the International Culinary Institute at the Art Institute. Sauteed Chicken Livers done Orleans style, serve with toast points or fresh pasta. You can sub any poultry liver, but make sure to soak in milk for an hour to remove a lot of the uric acid (ammonia smell) that is usually present in liver.

This is a totally awesome recipe - best chicken livers I've tasted in 50 years of cooking. The sauce is to die for. (for the demiglace, I subbed b eef stock and dry white wine 3-2 ration, reduced to half.)
