  1. Fry the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until almost crisp. Remove bacon from the pan and drain on paper towels. Drain off grease from the skillet, leaving a thin coating on the bottom.
  2. Using the same skillet, add the onions; cook and stir over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chicken livers, quickly browning them on the outside. Pour in the wine, adding more if needed to cover the chicken livers. Stir in the olives. Cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Just before serving, stir in the bacon.

We love this except we always use mushrooms in place of the green olives and we thinly slice the onion instead of chopping. YUM!

I like chicken livers, and I thought this recipe sounded appealing, but I did NOT like the result. The olives added nothing, the quantity of wine was too much.

I love chicken livers. However, this is just an awful, gray mess. Don't bother.
