This is old time Jewish Cooking, but also one of the classic recipes that I now make for all of our family occasions…

The trick here is to really use Chicken Fat and really slowly cook off the onions….

  • 1 lb Chicken Livers wash thoroughly, remove fat or green areas

  • 3 Onions Sliced
  • 2T Cooking Oil Canola with Chicken Fat


  1. Put Oil in high walled Frying Pan and Render Chicken Fat. Cut the oil down if you want to use more Chicken fat. You want a hot coated pan that will have enough taste to coat the onions.
