sweet onion, finely chopped
chicken livers, rinsed and trimmed
1 1/2 cups
Burgundy or other dry red wine
chopped pitted green olives
We love this except we always use mushrooms in place of the green olives and we thinly slice the onion instead of chopping. YUM!
I like chicken livers, and I thought this recipe sounded appealing, but I did NOT like the result. The olives added nothing, the quantity of wine was too much.
This dish was awesome! I love chicken liver and have been looking for a new way to cook it. I didn't have any olives, but I imagine they would make a good addition. I ate it with buttery mashed potatoes and peas, and scarfed it down!
WOW! What a yummy recipe. Cut recipe in 1/4s as I made it for only one person. I did not have dry red wine, but did have some Mogen David Concord Grape wine, cooked them to reduce the wine and make a glaze.Also omited the olives as I don't care for them. They turned out fantastic. Served them with a baked potato, peas and 3 bean salad.Thanks Va , for a wonderful recipe. They will be on my regular rotation.
I fixed it according to your instructions and it came out just fine. Thank you for such a good recipe. I know I'll fix it again.
This was quite tasty! The bacon was a nice addition!
Really liked this, easy to prepare and tasty+++++.
I thought I liked liver...but this recipe makes me think that maybe I don't! It was just too bland for me, so all I could taste was the liver. I made it with mushrooms instead of olives, and the result was warming and filling, but kinda blah. I'd suggest using a really nice wine--following the old advice not to cook with a wine you wouldn't enjoy drinking--and maybe it would be better. Still, if you're a liver-lover or a person who doesn't like spicy food, this would probably hit the spot.
