Balsamic Chicken Livers

Balsamic Chicken Livers created by Zurie

If you are reading this, then you probably like chicken livers! This recipe, however, may convert the "others", namely husbands, boyfriends, wives or girlfriends who don't. I must admit I would never have thought of this combination, but the balsamic vinegar tempers the earthy taste of the livers. These are equally good cold, served as appetizers.

Ready In:
15mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 12 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lb chicken liver, cleaned and cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 ounces butter
  • salt and pepper

directions

  • Combine the flour with the chili flakes in a resealable plastic bag.
  • A few at a time, put the livers in the bag and shake to completely coat, remove and set aside.
  • Repeat with remaining livers.
  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan.
  • Pan-fry livers for 2-5 minutes each side depending on whether you like them rare or well-done.
  • Remove the livers from the frying pan.
  • Remove the pan from the burner, and wait about 30 seconds for the pan to cool slightly.
  • Add the balsamic vinegar to the pan, return to the heat, and scrape the juices and cooked bits up.
  • Add the butter, and continue to mix well.
  • Return the livers to the pan, coating them with the sauce and warming them through.
  • Serve, and enjoy.

    I hate liver especially fried liver, but after trying this recipe, I think I might be buying liver more often. This was delicious! Tasted like a fancy meal at an expensive restaurant. The balsamic really made it work!

    Substituted 2 teaspoons of dry Ranch dressing for the red peppers.

    This is honestly the Best chicken liver recipe I've ever made! My only tweak was to substitute the dry Ranch Dressing mix for the red peppers (not a fan) and it was amazing. Since I'm the only liver-of-any-kind fan, this recipe will go a long way. Many thanks to it's creator.

    After years of sauteing chicken livers and onions, then creating a gravy with some chicken bouillon and serving over wide egg noodles, this has become a new favorite. Will make more sauce in the future...Luscious!!!
