  • 1 pound chicken livers

  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced

  • ¾ cup butter, softened

  • ¼ cup chopped onion

  • 3 tablespoons cooking sherry

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • teaspoon ground mace


  1. Combine livers and sliced onion in a medium saucepan. Pour in about 3 cups water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer until liver is tender, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from the heat and drain. Discard sliced onion, and remove and discard any hard portions of the livers.

  2. Process cooked livers in a food processor until smooth. Add butter, chopped onion, sherry, butter, salt, pepper, and mace; pulse to blend. Form mixture into a mound with lightly greased hands. Place onto a serving platter; cover and chill for 1 hour before serving.
