Chicken Liver Paté

Today we attempted to make a version of Frankie 457’s chicken liver crostini. I have an aversion to liver but tolerate it in paté and foie gras. I fell hard for Frankie’s chicken paté when we ordered their crostini so we decided to try making it with organic, free-range chicken livers from the Food Coop. This is a great creation with a nice hint of sage, brandy and lemon. Perfect over toasted baguette slices as an appetizer.
Chicken pate sprinkled with crushed roasted almonds.
Wash the liver really well using pretty hands.

They don’t really look very appetizing  right now.
Some ingredients.
Heat up some olive oil in a pan.
Saute garlic and onions.
Add anchovies.
Add chicken livers.
Saute livers until cooked. Add brandy and simmer.
Cut up some sage.
Add sage to pan.
Season with salt.
Mix together and crush cooked liver with a spatula. Cool for 15 minutes.
Blend using a food processor until pureed.
Zest a lemon peel and add to the mix.
Finished product.
Scoop into a ball and garnish with colorful objects. Serve with toasted sliced baguette. Mangia!
