I love chicken livers, and this is a simple and easy way to make them for a main dish for dinner. Chicken livers are also inexpensive. You can pick up a carton of them in the butcher section of your grocery store.

It’s also an easy recipe if you are cooking for 1 or 2.

Cooking for more?

Just double the recipe.

I hope you like it as much as I do.

I first posted this recipe on Food.com and got rave reviews:

Totally enjoyed these delicious bites of chicken livers…the hubby wanted his normal side of ketchup…I enjoyed the squeeze of lemon…it was a nice change.

Normally I double bread and fry chicken livers. These are pan fried, lightly breaded, and have that spark of tart from the lemon. We liked them quite a bit and will definitely make again!
