I can’t emphasize how amazing liver is. Gram for gram it is the most nutritious food. It is a multivitamin, really. Traditional cultures around the world consider liver a sacred food due to its high nutrient density. It’s high in vita A, E, D and K, B12, B6, zinc, folate, choline and iron. This is why it’s so great for pregnant women and young children. Unfortunately, a lot of people dislike the taste of liver. I am really into pate, but I understand that most people are a little grossed out by eating liver. So what I like to do is mix it into things. I’ll blend up a pound of chicken livers from the farm and freeze a little bit in individual packages. I then add it to whatever I’m cooking for dinner, soup, stir fry, chili, anything really. It disguises the taste wonderfully. I did this with my cilantro and lime chicken.

Ingredients:

  • half a bunch of cilantro
  • a few chicken livers (I used three)
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • juice of 1-2 limes
  • 5 bone in, skin on chicken breast, or around 1lbs

  4. Marinate for at least one hour.
  5. Bake on 400 for about thirty minutes.
