1 pound chicken livers
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon garlic salt
freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup vegetable oil


Rinse the chicken livers in cool water, pat dry, and cut into bite-size pieces.

Place the livers in a resealable plastic bag with the flour, garlic salt, and pepper to taste. Shake until all the pieces are coated with flour and spices.

Heat the oil in a skillet; when quite hot (drops of water will bounce when flicked into the pan), arrange the livers in the skillet so that they are not touching one another. Fry on one side until lightly browned, about 3 minutes, then turn to brown on the other side. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Made one small modification to this recipe. Wrapped the livers in bacon and secured with toothpicks, then tossed in the flour mixture and then fried using deep fryer.

In a word: AMAZING!

Just make sure that you remove the yellow bile ducts from the livers. The removal might shred some of the livers but don't be concerned. The removal takes away that sharp aftertaste and they turn out just as delicious as can be.
