Cook Time: 12 min

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 cup butter
1/2 cup Paula Deen Hot Sauce
1 lb chicken livers, soaking in milk
oil for deep frying, we used peanut, you can substitute canola or vegetable oil
1 cup Prepared blue cheese dressing
4 oz blue cheese, crumbled





PreHeat - 375° dutch oven

In a zip lock bag, combine flour, salt, paprika, garlic powder, and peppers. Place the chicken livers in the bag and shake gently until coated.

In a small saucepan, heat butter and hot sauce just until butter melts; keep warm until ready to use.

Heat oil in a deep fryer or dutch oven to a temperature of 375º F. Deep-fry livers, 8 - 10 pieces at a time for 10-12 minutes, turning once or twice.

Drain livers on a paper towel lined baking sheet for 30 seconds.  Transfer buffalo sauce to a large mixing bowl, then immediately toss fried livers in the buffalo sauce and remove with a slotted spoon.

Repeat with remaining livers.

For the Dipping sauce:
In a small bowl, stir together the prepared blue cheese dressing and the crumbled blue cheese.

This is hands down the best way to cook chicken livers, the liver taste is not overpowering like in other recipes. My favorite part was the buffalo sauce. I will make this again.

Just great! My family thinks this is the best way to fix livers. I'll use this recipe from now on.

Great job paula! This recipe for chicken livers was the best. Two of my family members who claimed to not like liver tried it and loved it and that should tell you a lot about this recipe.

This recipe is so simple and yet so amazingly good! We were looking for a way to step up chicken livers and both love heat - this recipe was right on time! You owe it to yourself to try this recipe. So many recipes for hot wings, so it is refreshing to take a more inexpensive part of the chicken so many overlook - and a great flavor profile!
