Chopped (Chicken) Liver - Jewish Comfort Food

Course Appetizer


  • 1 pound Chicken livers
  • 2 tbsp Chicken fat or oil
  • 2 Onions, diced (I chopped them in my Cuisinart Food Processor)
  • 2 Hard boiled eggs ( I made this ahead of time in my Instant Pot)


  • Make your hard boiled eggs - I use the 5-5-5 method in my Instant Pot.
  • Wash the chicken livers, remove any colored spots or stringy material and drain.
  • Heat two tablespoons of fat or oil in a frying pan (this is like the one I use).
  • Brown the onions first. Remove and set aside.
  • Cook the chicken livers in the same pan for about ten minutes or until they are cooked throughly.
  • Then remove from pan and let them cool. Add cooked chicken livers, onions, remaining fan in the pan, plus salt and pepper. Chop in your food processor.
  • Then add the peeled, hard boiled eggs (I dice these first).
  • Chop more and then add more salt and pepper if you want.
  • Refrigerate and then serve with your holiday meal.
