  • 350 g fresh chicken liver
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 3 tablespoon full-fat cream cheese
  • 4 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon freshly-chopped parsley
  1. Rinse the chicken livers with cold water, then gently pat dry with kitchen paper.

  2. Heat up a grilling pan and grill the livers on both sides for about 6-7 minutes or until cooked through. Chop roughly and set aside.

  3. Chop the onion and carrots, and add them to a pan together with the olive oil and one tablespoon of butter.

  4. Sautee for about 3 minutes until soft, then add the chopped chicken livers and stir continuously for 2 minutes.

  5. Add the cream cheese, ground pepper and half a teaspoon of parsley and stir to combine.

  6. Use a hand blender to blend until smooth.

  7. Transfer the chicken liver pâté to two ramekins, melt the remaining butter, then pour it over the pâté. 

  8. Leave to cool, then cover with clingfilm and refrigerate. Serve cold, garnished with parsley.

  • Click on the US Customary link to see the measurements displayed in cups and ounces.
  • The servings can be adjusted by clicking the number next to Servings.
  • Sealing it with butter helps keep it fresh, so that's one step not to be skipped. I usually transfer the pâté to ramekins and cover them with clingfilm and then refrigerate.
