With a more delicate flavour than calf's liver, these butter-browned chicken livers are tender, nutritious and rich in iron. Tossed with apples and spinach, this warm salad gives you a boost of an important mineral—and a shot of sherry for good measure.



  1. In a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, soften the apples, onion and leek in half of the butter. Add 1/4 cup (60 ml) of the sherry. Cook for 1 minute. Add the spinach and cook for 1 more minute, until the spinach starts to wilt. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside on a plate and keep warm.
  2. In the same skillet over medium-high heat, brown the livers in the remaining butter for 2 minutes per side or until medium-rare. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside on a plate.
  3. Deglaze the skillet with the remaining sherry and the maple syrup. Let reduce until thick and syrupy, about 1 minute. Return the livers to the skillet and toss to coat with the sauce. Serve the livers over the sautéed apples and spinach.


  1. Made this with gala royal apples. Followed the rest of this recipe. I did double it and will freeze some for another two meals. This was so delicious

  2. Taking the same recipe and adding some 35% cream, put in the blender and presto you have great pate.
