Number of Servings: 1


    1 lb. Chicken livers, cleaned, rinsed, and drained
    1 medium onion or shallot or combination, diced
    8 oz. mushroom, slice or rough chop
    4 tbs. butter (grassfed if possible)
    1-2 tbs. lemon juice
    2 tbs. sherry (medium or dry)
    1 tsp. Herbs de provence or a combination of herbs you like (thyme, rosemary, basil, oregano, etc.)
    salt and pepper to taste


* Melt 1 tb. of the butter in a 10 inch skillet. Once foaming ceases add onions, shallots, and mushrooms, season with a pinch of salt, and saute until onions are soft and clear. (5-10 minutes)

* If pan becomes dry or sticky add a tablespoon or two of water or chicken broth to keep things moving. Don't let onions brown or a bitter taste may develop.

* Add chicken livers, season with a little salt, pepper, sherry, herbs and lemon juice, and cook through. Slight pink on the inside is OK. The liquids will reduce but if it seems too dry add 1 tb. water. (about 7 minutes)

* Turn off heat and let pan cool a few minutes.

* Add contents of pan plus the remaining butter to a food processor or blender (I used a "Magic Bullet").

* Process until smooth, put into ramekins, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill. I filled 3 1-cup ramekins with this. Once chilled I put two of the ramekins into freezer bags and froze.

* Serve with crackers or a thinly sliced and oven toasted baguette.

    I don't like the taste of liver, so I thought I'd try this to see if it helped. It didn't. - 8/18/19
