  • 500 grams chicken livers
  • 125 ml bottle of Nandos Garlic Peri Peri Sauce or substitute with the flavour, level of heat as per your taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 3 fat cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1-2 tablespoons of water to adjust the thickness of the gravy
  • oil for shallow frying
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  1. Cut the chicken livers into two pieces (they are usually two parts joined together - break the joints and cut each part into two). Wash in a couple of changes of water and drain on a colander for a few minutes. Then marinate them with the salt and keep aside for 15-20 minutes.

  2. After 15 minutes boil the marinated livers in hot water for about 3-4 minutes. There will be some froth/foam on top so remove the liver pieces carefully and set aside. Discard the water.
  3. Heat oil in a pan and fry the liver pieces by tossing the pan until they harden a bit and turn brownish. Don't stir too much as they may crumble. Remove onto a plate.
  4. To the same pan add some extra oil and fry the garlic. Add the butter and the peri peri sauce and simmer for a minute. Reduce the heat completely and add the milk slowly to the simmering paste and stir continuously till the sauce thickens. Do not cover the pan or cook the sauce on a high heat as the milk will curdle quickly. Add a few tablespoons of water to adjust the consistency of the gravy.

  5. Add the fried chicken pieces and simmer for another 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and serve hot with Portuguese bread or dinner rolls.
Recipe Notes

Depending on the livers and the type of sauce used the colour of the gravy could vary from a pale orange to almost greyish black - this however will not affect the taste of the dish.
