Chicken livers


Where can you buy chicken livers? Here in FL they all seem to end up in dog, or cat food!

My local Stop ‘n’ Shop carries them. Any kosher butcher should have them. Most Jewish delis should have chopped chicken livers.

I made pate from chicken livers a couple of years ago - It is strange that they were scarce in Atlanta and then plentiful. Try large ethnic grocery stores as well. Good luck! It’s delicious!


I love it, but ready made contains sugar. I just want the livers, some herbs and butter!

I used a Julia Child recipe and bought a tiny bottle of cognac to add some. I don’t like whisky or Scotch, but it is recommended in Jacques Pepin’s recipe. No carbs in those, I don’t think. Cognac does… Let us know how yours turns out!

In Georgia most all grocery stores carry them. Generally in the poultry section in a pound & a quarter tub.

Just ask at the meat counter of your local grocer.

Whole Foods definitely carries it. I buy several & freeze the extras. No change in texture.

FYI I fry them like Keto fried chicken plus some bacon fat.

My local butcher shop was where I went to get them, and that’s the only place. I told them I wanted about 2 lbs., and when I arrived at the shop two days later, there was about 7 lbs. in the freezer case in approximately 1 lb. containers. I bought 5 of them for about $5.50. Going back to get some more next week. I just heat up 1/2 an onion in bacon grease, reserve the onion, and then add the livers, salt and peppering (and sometimes a little garlic powder) until cooked through.


I’ve seen them at Publix packaged in styrofoam and cling wrap like the other chicken.

At our local chicken shop they have hearts, livers, all that. But I’ve been phobic of offal in general although strangely I have liked liverwurst because it was presented as a treat when we visited my uncle at school holidays. Maybe I will get adventurous. That liqueur liverworst is tempting. :slight_smile:

I’ve always loved the chicken bits, especially back in the day when I was frying them. I’ve been wanting to do some hearts but I can’t seem to find any now! Usually they are available, I’ve even found them at Walmart before. :expressionless:

My Whole Foods doesn’t sell chicken livers but I think they are willing to order them.

I had to ask the Wholefoods butcher. Apparently not enough people buy it. He ends up tossing a lot.
I told him, I’ll buy as many as I can fit in my freezer if it helps. I suggested he only put a few out with the rest of the package chicken. But keep some in the freezer section. (They are shipped frozen.)

It’s about the only thing I buy at Wholefoods these days.
Good luck

I was in a steak house in Prairie Du Chain WI and they served Chicken liver and a slice of water chestnut wrapped in bacon. I tried making my own in the oven, not as crispy, going to try the deep fryer next.
