The best easy paleo chicken liver recipe

For those of us who actually enjoy the stuff… this easy chicken pate came out great! I have not eaten pate in some time, but I have always liked it. For some reason, I always thought it something over my head. While It’s actually pretty basic, the ingredients, are … not so much.

Traditional pate was made with duck livers. Really, any liver will do; The Paleo Mom will argue that grass-fed beef liver is best. I could not find any. Seriously. 3 different grocery stores (even Whole Foods) and no beef liver. But I did find ORGANIC chicken livers! Now, had they been conventional, I would have passed.

Then, what? Game changer… duck fat! Yes, please! Especially from Mary’s Farm. Love their chicken and duck! Bacon fat or ghee (not AIP) will work well too!

I have since made this Easy Liver Pate, which is so easy, various ways and I will explain those variations next!

So… want to get all (not so) fancy with it? I’ll show you how!

Different ways to enjoy this paleo chicken liver pate recipe:

  • I have now tried EASY LIVER PATE with bacon fat & apple cider vinegar (instead of duck fat and balsamic) and it works great!
  • I also made this with beef liver, using 1 pound, 3 tablespoons bacon fat and added in 1 cup of mushrooms to the onions. Also used apple cider vinegar and fresh rosemary in this combo and it turned out delicious… actually, my favorite to date.

Health benefits of pate

The Paleo Mom, who’s a doctor, says that “Compared to the muscle meat we are used to eating, organ meats are more densely packed with just about every nutrient, including heavy doses of B vitamins such as: B1, B2, B6, folic acid and the very important vitamin B12. Organ meats are also loaded with minerals like phosphorus, iron, copper, magnesium, iodine, calcium, potassium, sodium, selenium, zinc and manganese and provide the important fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. (2,3)

Organ meats are known to have some of the highest concentrations of naturally occurring vitamin D of any food source. Organ meats also contain high amounts of essential fatty acids, including arachidonic acid and the omega-3 fats EPA and DHA.” Need more reasons… read this article “Why Everyone Should Eat Liver”.

    Hi Cristina! Quick question- is the celery required in this recipe? What am I missing out on if I omit? Anything I could use instead? Thanks! Can’t wait to try this!


    • Cristina Curp, FNTP says

      It adds volume and some flavor but nothing that will be sorely missed, you can leave it out, the recipe will yield a little less


  2. Danielle Chappell says

    I’m new to eating liver and this is delicious! This recipe will def help me get more iron into my diet! Thanks so much!!


  3. Anne Marie says

    This is amazing! Finished up the first batch and must have more! Dermatologist recommended getting my iron higher to combat COVID hair loss, so I’ve made this a lunch time treat. Off to get more liver…..
