  I had my first taste of this crazy yummy dish while we still lived in the U.K. It uses the same sauce I use when making Peri-Peri Chicken. For the Peri-Peri sauce itself, I have the recipe here too. Just add more chili peppers for those seeking adventure! If you’ve ever eaten chicken liver pate/mousse/spread and liked it, you will LOVE chicken livers cooked in this spicy sauce.

Chicken liver and Peri-Peri is one of the best combinations that will always win our hearts and tummies over.
