I know a lot of people love chicken livers, but I’m NOT one of those people. I’m really just not a fan. I don’t like the texture of the liver at all. But I DO love a good chicken liver pate. 

And now I’ve found a recipe that is as good, if not better, than your favorite store bought chicken liver pate!

This recipe is divine. It’s rich and creamy and easy peasy to make! Delicious served as a dip with veggie sticks or with your favorite low carb seed crackers. Perfect as a starter to your Christmas lunch. The recipe also yields a fair amount so no need to worry if you’re serving a larger group of people. I got 3 large ramekins of pate from the one recipe.
