Simple Pan Fried Chicken Livers With Onions And Seasonal Veg

I’m a big fan of chicken livers, but I know not everyone is. So, in the interest of trying to convert as many people as possible, I’ve come up with a super simple and delicious way to prepare them that even the non-believers might enjoy. The key is in the caramelised onions – they add a deep, complex sweetness that balances out the slight bitterness of the liver. Give it a try! You might be surprised at how much you like them. 🙂
