How to Cook Chicken Livers in a Fry Daddy

Updated February 21, 2017

Fried chicken livers are a Southern delicacy, and are traditionally serving with hot sauce or gravy for dipping. Chicken livers are an inexpensive poultry product, and feature a crunchy texture when battered and deep fried. Create your own batter using your favourite ingredients for a customised flavour. If you're on a tight party-planning budget, you can serve fried chicken livers as an appetizer in place of fried oysters. While plain chicken livers may be unappealing to some, they may gain a larger fan base when covered in a crispy batter.

Place 1 pound of chicken livers in a colander and rinse them under cool, running water. Shake the colander to thoroughly drain the livers.

Place the Fry Daddy electric fryer on a flat, heat-resistant surface in your kitchen. Fill the Fry Daddy with canola or vegetable oil up to the fill line, which is located inside the appliance. Turn the fryer on and allow the oil to heat up for 15 minutes.

Blend 2 cups of all-purpose flour and salt, ground black pepper, and poultry seasoning or garlic powder to taste in a small mixing bowl. Pour 1/2 cup of buttermilk into another small bowl.

Dip the chicken livers into the buttermilk and then dredge them in the flour and seasoning blend. Gently shake each liver over the bowl to remove excess flour.

Transfer the battered chicken livers into the Fry Daddy's wire basket. Place the basket into the hot oil and fry the livers for three to four minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
