2. Add the chicken livers to the frying-pan. cook them for 2-3 minutes until they are just firm.

You need something to mop up the wonderful juices, so serve with wild rice or creamed potatoes with a hint of nutmeg, and fresh green vegetables, such as mangetut. Garnish with small sprigs of fresh basil or parsley. Enjoy your meal!
