- Licious chicken liver
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 small shallot
- 2 ½ tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp brandy
- ¼ tsp fresh chopped thyme leaves
For the pâté:
- Peel and then finely dice the garlic and shallot.
- Warm ½ tbsp butter in a frying pan/ skillet over medium heat. After that, add the shallot.
- Stir it for a minute and add the garlic.
- When the onion softens and becomes translucent, it is time to add the liver along with the thyme.
- Cook for around 3 minutes on every side until it turns pink in the middle and is lightly cooked on the outside.
- Add the brandy. Stir gently so that the alcohol in the brandy evaporates. When it turns syrup-like, then remove it from the heat.
- Scour the contents of the pan into a food processor and then add the remaining 2 tbsp of butter. Blend until the mixture turns smooth.
- Transfer the pâté to dishes and flatten the top.
- Refrigerate and use within two days.
- To keep fresh a little longer, add a butter seal.
- Melt the 2-3 tbsp of butter in a tiny pan and remove it after it has melted.
- Pour the butter on the chilled pâté.
It can be served with rice crackers or crusty bread and paired with wine if you’re in the mood for something fancy. Enjoy!
