Chicken Liver Pâté

I have to thank Una Webster for sharing this great recipe with me. During my final year in university I lived with a friend by the name of Brian Webster. His mother Una, made the best chicken liver pâté I had ever tasted and Brian would always bring some up after visiting his home in Glanmire, Co. Cork. The recipe is older than me dating back to the mid 70′s, and tastes fantastic! It’s quick and simple to make and chicken liver is not that expensive to buy. In fact some butchers may even give you liver for free, depending on what else you buy or how well you know them. It’s real handy to have in the fridge, wonderful when spread on toast in the morning or a snack any time. It got myself and Brian by on many occasions, especially when when the finances were low. Give it a try, you wont be disappointed!
