Chicken Liver Pate

    4 hours 35 minutes

    This is a chicken liver pate that has a roux base rather than a gelatine base which makes the result much softer and great for spreading on toast.

    Serves: 8 

    • 1 large onion, diced
    • 2 cloves garlic, diced
    • herbs, to taste
    • 1 dash oil, for frying
    • 300g chicken livers
    • 60g butter
    • 2 tablespoons flour
    • 125ml milk

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:4hours chilling  ›  Ready in:4hours35min 

    1. Fry the onions, garlic and herbs until the onions are soft and are starting to colour. Remove from frypan and set aside.
    2. Fry the livers until cooked through.
    3. Melt the butter in a saucepan then add the flour. After letting the flour cook in the butter for a minute add the milk a little bit at a time ensuring the paste remains smooth. You will be making a roux sauce base but you want to stop before it becomes liquid. The mixture should still be thick and come away from the sides of the saucepan.
    4. In a blender mix the onions with the roux and blend until smooth. Add the cooked liver. Blend to the desired texture; smooth or chunky.
    5. Line a terrine with baking paper and spoon the pate into it.
    6. Chill for at least 4 hours in the fridge.
