Chicken Livers, What To Do?

In another thread on Antonio's in Sherman Oaks we were discussing Spaghetti Caruso which is made with chicken livers. Well, I'm at a loss. I suppose there is chopped chicken liver, pate and dirty rice. Then what? And once you figure out, then what, tell me where.. Thanks.

    1. Wonderful chicken liver mousse with roasted green apple, rye toast at Superba Snack Bar in Venice.

      1. You might check out what Nanban-Kan does with their skewered chicken livers.

          By jove Servorg I think you've got it. Now were on the track to some interesting things to do with chicken livers and where to do it.

        2. I know what they do with them in my wife's favorite hometown restaurant [The Cellar], which is in Geneseo, IL. They lightly bread and pan fry them!

            What time is the next flight? Only teasing. I'll try the link.

              Ok. Checked the link and it seems like a nice restaurant in Illinois. Only $1057 in fuel costs according to the directions link. Do you think we might find a restaurant a bit closer. Like even Orange County (shudder).

                Sorry, I didn't see you were in Sherman Oaks ... Thanks for the snark! I deserve it.

                I do something similar except I bake them in the oven instead of pan frying. They cook very quickly, less than 30 minutes...

              3. Saute w/ butter & shallot; deglaze the pan with a little red wine; cool & put in food processor; add 8oz cream cheese & some green peppercorns; process till smooth. It's a fake pate but it's tasty.

                  If your talking about sautéing a lb of chicken livers, what's fake about that?
