Welcome to my blog! Today, I am going to show you how to cook a delicious and nutritious chicken liver stew. This dish is perfect for those who want to increase their iron intake and add variety to their meal plan. Chicken liver stew is also a great way to use up leftover liver and vegetables in your fridge.
- 500g chicken livers
- 2 large onions, diced
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 cups of mixed vegetables (such as carrots, celery, and bell peppers)
- 2 cups of chicken stock
- 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
- 1 teaspoon of dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon of paprika
- 2 tablespoons of oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
Step 1: Clean and prepare the chicken livers
Remove the membrane and any visible fat from the chicken livers. Rinse them well under cold running water and pat them dry with paper towels. Cut them into small pieces and set aside.
Step 2: Sauté the onions and garlic
In a large pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and sauté until they are soft and translucent. This should take around 5 minutes.
Step 3: Add the vegetables and spices
Add the mixed vegetables, dried thyme, paprika, salt, and pepper to the pot. Stir well and cook for another 5 minutes until the vegetables are slightly softened.
Step 4: Add the chicken livers and cook
Add the chicken livers to the pot and cook for 5-7 minutes until they are browned on the outside but still juicy on the inside.
Step 5: Add the tomato paste and chicken stock
Add the tomato paste and chicken stock to the pot. Stir well to combine all the ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let the stew simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken livers are fully cooked and tender.
Step 6: Serve hot and enjoy!
Once the stew is fully cooked, serve it hot with some crusty bread or a side of rice. Enjoy the delicious and nutritious chicken liver stew!
- If you don't have chicken stock, you can use water instead. However, the stew may be less flavorful.
- You can add other vegetables of your choice such as mushrooms or green peas.
- For a creamier texture, you can add some heavy cream to the stew before serving.
- Make sure to cook the chicken livers until they are fully cooked to avoid any risk of foodborne illness.
