"By far the best chopped chicken liver ever! This is from the recipes used at the famous Grossinger's Resort in the Catskills, NY. Please use real rendered chicken fat; it makes a big difference in the flavor. See the recipe for rendered chicken fat in the footnote of this recipe. Serve with crackers or on lettuce or on a bagel with a tomato slice."

I've been making chopped liver for decades and my recipe is similar to this and everyone loves it. My grandmother was a good friend of Jennie Grossinger and I spent many happy weekends there in my young, single days.
Since I do not keep kosher, I tend to substitute no trans fat margarine for the chicken fat. I also use about a dozen hard-boiled eggs to one pound of chicken livers to make it taste less like liver, plus it makes a much larger quantity. For those, like me, who dislike liver of any kind, you may find you enjoy this version.
I made this recipe today and I can honestly say it's the best ever. I followed it exactly as posted.
