The Easiest Luxury Chicken Liver Pate

luxury chicken Liver Pate

Being a lifelong lover of Pate, I knew exactly what was gonna go down in my house when my husband brought home 3 packs of chicken livers the other night.  Yip, you guessed it luxury chicken liver pate.  I guess you already knew that since your here for the recipe.

Anyway, this is the most amazing smooth, creamy and luxurious pate, and it’s so simple to make.  It would make the perfect starter for Christmas day or perfect for lunch anytime!

Please remember the pate does need at least 5 hours in the fridge to set so It is the perfect dish to make ahead of time with less fuss when serving.

P.S did you know that new research shows pate is super good for you in moderation and as long as it is homemade, so what are you waiting for?  Get on with it now… and if you do give it a go, please share your pictures of your Chicken Liver Pate with me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram!!!
