Oct 29, 2021

Are you looking for a tasty weeday meal that will satisfy your hunger and taste absolutely amazing? These creamy, Spicy Chicken Livers will always be a winner. Chicken livers are a favourite starter at many restaurants and it can be at your home too. However, chicken livers are a fantastic meal on its their own too. You can get cleaned chicken liver portions at most grocery stores. You can easily leave the chili flakes out and not make it spicy, but you won’t regret adding them anyway.

Chillies have a way of adding some extra flavour to our dish, even if you don’t add that much. While the chicken livers are cooking, you can decide to break them up a bit if you don’t like big chunks, which actually works even better when you want to have them with some bread. Cream mellows the liver flavour but adds something great in terms of creamy texture, especially with smaller pieces of meat. Livers are great source of protein and iron, making this a nutritious meal as well.

The perfect weekday meal is here with these creamy, Spicy Chicken Livers. They are perfect with your favourite bread like ciabata, French loaf or sourdough.
