  • 1 pound chicken livers - rinsed, trimmed, and patted dry

  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste

  • 6 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add livers and sauté in the dry skillet until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Gently stir in oil, lemon juice, and salt until livers are well coated. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with garlic.


The dry-fry technique prevents the livers from browning and keeps them tender enough to melt in your mouth.

You can use virgin olive oil, but it can overpower the dish, which has a surprisingly mild flavor.
