Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups teriyaki sauce

  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic

  • ½ teaspoon minced fresh ginger root

  • 12 ounces fresh chicken livers, halved

  • 1 (4 ounce) can water chestnuts, drained and sliced

  • 12 slices bacon, cut in half

  • 1 quart oil for frying

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together teriyaki sauce, garlic and ginger root. Place chicken livers and water chestnuts in the mixture. Marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours.

  2. Heat oil in a large, heavy saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  3. Wrap each half slice of bacon around one chicken liver half and a slice of water chestnut. Secure by skewering with small skewers or toothpicks.

  4. Carefully lower skewered wraps into the hot oil in small batches. Deep fry 3 to 4 minutes, or until bacon is evenly brown and of desired crispness. Remove from heat and drain on paper towels.
