Kid Friendly Chicken Liver Recipe (Paleo, AIP, Whole30)
I completed my third week of being on the AIP. Consuming organ meats is encouraged on this diet. Why? Read this article to find out. I used this recipe to make chicken liver and made a few changes. I served the liver and sweet potatoes with sautéed greens.
Most (noticed I said most) of the children ate this meal. My oldest still has a strong aversion to chicken liver and this new recipe did not cause her to change her mind. But child number 5 after cleaning his plate and asking for seconds exclaimed, “THIS IS YUMMY!” I was so pleased but THEN my older children burst my bubbles by reminding me that child number five eats just about anything except for “FISS” (FISH). They couldn’t let me have my moment. Oh well. Give this recipe a try and let me know how it works for those in your family. Sorry I don’t have any pictures. Quite honestly it wasn’t a pretty dish but it was definitely palatable!
