It's easier than you think to mix up an elegant chicken liver pate right at home.This chicken liver recipe gets an extra flavor boost by way of bacon. (Yes, like most things, it makes this chicken pate better, too!)
In a large skillet cook bacon until crisp. Remove from skillet, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. Drain and crumble bacon; set aside.
Add chicken livers, onion, and garlic to reserved drippings in skillet. Cook and stir over medium heat about 5 minutes or until livers are no longer pink; cool slightly.
In a food processor or blender combine crumbled bacon, chicken liver mixture, wine, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Cover and process or blend until combined (mixture will be soft). Line a 1-cup mold or bowl with plastic wrap; spoon in liver mixture. (Or spoon liver mixture directly into a crock or ramekin or several small ramekins.) Cover and chill for 3 to 24 hours.
To serve, uncover and invert mold or bowl onto a platter; remove plastic wrap. (Or place ramekin or crock on a serving plate.) If desired, sprinkle with parsley or chives. Serve with crackers.
