Are chicken livers healthy?

Have you ever tried chicken liver? Many may balk at the idea of this unique dish, but the chicken liver is an often overlooked source of healthful, low-calorie nutrition.


  • 2 x 250 g punnets chicken livers
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tin diced tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 large red chili chopped
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine

  • 2 tsp peri powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup fresh cream

  1. Wash and trim the chicken livers then cut them in half.
