Fried Chicken Livers Recipe

  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked rice
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups peanut oil*
  • 2 lbs. chicken livers
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper (optional
  • 2 large onions peeled and sliced
  • *other vegetable oils may be substituted

Bring water to boil in a saucepan on high heat.

Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and rice.

Cover and reduce heat to low.

Simmer 20 minutes.

While rice is cooking, prepare livers.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat until a small piece of bread will sizzle when dropped into the hot oil.

If using an electric skillet preheat it to 350 F.

While oil is heating, put flour into a mixing bowl. Stir in pepper.

Sprinkle salt on livers and coat well.

Add to hot oil, one at a time to prevent sticking together.

Fry uncovered about 6 minutes on one side, turn and fry about 6 minutes on the other side until done.

To test for done, stick livers with a fork or the tip of a small knife and look inside.

When the pink inside color is gone, they are done. Remove from hot oil, drain slightly, and place on top of cooked hot rice in a warm serving dish.

Pour oil from skillet except enough to coat the bottom.

Add onions.

Cover and cook a few minutes until they are tender to your liking.

Remove and drain well before serving.

In additions to rice, these delicious, tender livers are awesome served with a heaping of Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes or wide, buttered Homemade Noodles..

I hope you and your family enjoy this old fashioned recipes quick and easy meal.
