    I'm going to try this one... Thanks for posting.

    Maybe I'll make the trip out to an Oriental market today. That is the only place I recall seeing chicken livers at.

    Chicken liver isn't optimal I guess - but I don't worry too much about that any more. We have much more important things to worry about. Yep liver is good. I just made this with chicken hearts that I inadvertently bought ...was good.
    You can use lamb liver but it is stronger - maybe calves liver would be good. It really helps to get the fat in and it is so reasonably priced :)
