Szechuan Chicken Livers

This is a very versatile recipe. Instead of serving the livers over rice or pasta make crepes and fill them with these tasty livers. Another idea make an omelet and fold in the livers as your flavor accent. Or have them as a side dish on a buffet table. I haven't made this recipe for years - it is one of my earlier postings and I found that there were a few things that needed clarification so I have made some corrections

This is comfort food for me as it brings back childhood memories. I usually steer clear of alcohol, but do cook with it. Today I treated myself. I gave six spoonfuls over to the recipe and twelve for me! Ha! Truly, this is so delicious, I even doubled it. I ate it as is and served it with deli corned beef for my boys (students). They scoffed it up!
