This recipe for chicken livers is an earthy combination of bacon, mushrooms, and green onions. Chicken broth, condensed golden mushroom soup, and white wine make for a tasty sauce that complements the other ingredients perfectly. To make the recipe, bacon is cooked until crispy and removed, and then the chicken livers, which have been coated in seasoned flour, are sauteed in the bacon grease along with the green onions and mushrooms. The chicken broth is added and the mixture is brought to a simmer before transferring to the slow cooker with the cooked bacon, soup, and wine. Simply set the crock pot to low and leave for three to five hours. This dish is delicious served over a bed of cooked rice, buttered noodles, or toast points.
Button mushrooms work great in this recipe, but feel free to use another variety such as crimini, shiitake, or oyster mushrooms. If you aren't a fan of chicken livers but like the combination of ingredients, you can make the dish with boneless chicken thighs. They have loads of flavor, pair well with the mushrooms, bacon, and green onions, and do well in the slow cooker.
