DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium saucepan, combine the chicken livers, onion, garlic, bay leaf, thyme and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
  • Add the water and bring to a simmer; cover, reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the livers are barely pink inside, about 3 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.
  • Discard the bay leaf.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer the livers, onion and garlic to a food processor; process until coarsely pureed.
  • With the machine on, add the butter, 2 tablespoons at a time, until incorporated.
  • Add the Cognac, season with salt and pepper and process until completely smooth.
  • Scrape the pâté into 2 or 3 large ramekins; press a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the pâté and refrigerate until firm.
  • Serve chilled.
  • Enjoy!
