My husband and I enjoy chicken livers as a main dish but I wanted something different from my usual pan-frying with onions. I made this recipe using poultry seasoning instead of the Italian and we really liked it. My hubby likes crispiness so at the end of the baking time I topped these off with a couple of minutes under the broiler. Tender and very tasty! Read More

These tasted like chicken livers with cracker coating seasoned with a little italian spices.:l They did. I was surprised the spices weren't stronger flavoring. Don't get me wrong it wasn't too subtle. I just thought it was too much eventhough I used the full T. The bottom coating got soggy & the top kinda sat there. 'Didn't even toast which surprised me. Also done in thirty minutes. I'll try with marsala next time. Next day: Spice flavor increased - too much for me - for chicken livers anyway. Read More

A Few Tips! Rinse the livers then soak them in milk overnight. Rinse and pat dry before dipping in butter. After dipping in butter season with salt pepper garlic powder and any other seasonings you want to use. The Italian seasoning was pretty yummy! I used Keebler Club Crackers they are very buttery. I put them in a gallon sized plastic bag and used the rolling pin to crush them. it is important to get the crumbs as fine as possible. Set the livers so they aren't touching on a cookie sheet or baking pan. Check them after 20- 30 minutes; small or thin livers will be done earlier than fat ones. At 25 minutes I ate the thin ones all up and turned the fat ones over for another 5 minutes; even the fattest chicken liver I had was done at a total of 30 minutes. I gave this 4 stars because even though it is healthier than my usual recipe livers are much better fried with bacon and crispy caramelized onions. This was simply a little bland although I enjoyed trying something new! I will post a photo tomorrow! Read More

My husband and I LOVE chicken livers but would always fry them. This recipe is fantastic as an alternative to oil burns from the inevitable popping livers in the frying pan. Broiling for the last couple minutes of baking really gives them a nice crisp crust. I also cut crackers with breadcrumbs so that the livers are fully coated. Excellent recipe!!! Read More

really liked it alot. baked it along with "best baked fries" (which really are the best by the way!) recipe from this website. Since fries had to bake at @ 425 put the livers in oven during last 15 of baking time then turned them all over and put them in the broiler on high for about 8 minutes or so. They were moist and flavorful on the inside and had a nice crisp coating on the outside. I think what made the difference in texture was I baked them on a pizza pan with air holes and of course the broiling. Even my picky 6 year old son liked them! Besides cooking time and temperature a few changes: as others suggested soaked them in milk but only had time for 20 minute soak they were just fine (others suggested an overnight soak etc...). Omitted the butter entirely there are enough grams of fat in those crackers. beat 2 eggs together and dipped the livers in that. Someone else posted they mixed their cracker crumbs with instant potato flakes took their advice and was happy with the results. Wanted even more of a coating but didn't want to dip in egg again because I was in a hurry so sprayed all coated livers over with cooking oil spray and rolled all in the zip lock bag of crumbs again. If I had to change anything else... I probably wouldn't! This was a good recipe! Thanks for posting! will definitely make again. curious to try with beef liver to see if my kid will eat that too. He is a pain to cook for cuz he hates everything! Read More
