  • 2 pounds chicken liver
  • 3 onions medium size
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 5 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/3 tsp ground black pepper


  • Preheat a large skillet with 4-5 tablespoons of oil. Once the oil is hot, add finely sliced onion. Saute onion until it soften and become a light golden color. Once the onion is cooked, transfer it to a bowl leaving the oil in the pan.
  • Add minced garlic to the pan, and cook it for 2 minutes. Next, add the liver to the pan and continue cooking. In about 2-3 minutes, gently turn the livers on the opposite side and add 3 teaspoons of dijon mustard. Mix gently no to break the liver pieces. Cover the skillet with the lid and cook for another 8 - 10 minutes over low to medium heat.
  • Once the liver is done, turn off the heat. Add fried onion and season with salt and pepper to taste, lightly mixing. Serve fried chicken liver warm, sprinkled with a little greenery, paired with your favorite side dish.
