I was never a big fan of chicken livers until I had them fried in batter while in Lawton Oklahoma.  The store charged us $1 for each liver, and I thought I bet I can do them cheaper.  I was absolutely right! These fried goodies are easy to do and will cost you around $5 for a pound of them.


  • 1 lb. fresh chicken livers, cleaned
  • 3 cups cooking oil
  • 1 cup BASIC CHICKEN DUST (CHICKEN BATTER) (ingredients also listed below)
  • 1 cup milk, or water
  • ***********************
  • Ingredients for Chicken Dust:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. sweet paprika
  • 2 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2 to 3 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • ½ tsp. sugar
  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes


  1. Add chicken dust ingredients to a resealable bag.
  2. Place the milk in a bowl for dipping.
  3. Heat oil in a deep frying pan to 375-degrees.
  4. Coat the livers in the milk, then place in chicken dust.  Close bag and shake to coat the livers evenly.
  5. Repeat step 4
  6. Carefully, add the battered chicken livers to the oil in a single layer (you may have to do a few batches.) causing burns, so be careful Heat the oil to med-high, and once heated carefully add the livers in a single layer. Fry for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until livers are golden brown and completely cooked to 165-degrees.
