Personally, I prefer those happy-looking foods. What I mean by happy-looking foods are those with so much color and add-ins. :D For example, I love veggie fried rice with all those beautiful peas, corn and carrots. I also love seafood or veggie pizza more than the plain ones. I love sandwiches and burgers with all those veggies and sauces. I love to see and taste different flavors.
I don’t have anything against plain, one-tone foods – I also love them. They are simple and easier to make, too. Especially when you are always in a hurry or have busy schedule, you opt to go with quick and easy meals.
During weekends, especially Saturdays, I try my very best to make two savoury meals and one for my sweet tooth, or the other way around. With the busy schedule that I have, I should have something ready inside the fridge to heat or grab-on-the-go. But sometimes, you get sick eating the same food everyday so there are times that I go with instant noodles, fruit yogurt, cereals or eggs when I arrive home from work. :| However, there are Saturdays when I have to run some errands to add to my baking and cooking sessions. In these times, I have to go with easy and quick dishes.
I love chicken livers and I love them BBQ-d. But going with the latter doesn’t sound so quick and easy at all. Two things you can do – either marinate them the night before a busy schedule or you can just cook them right away. I almost know my activities for the weekend, so the night before, I marinated chicken livers. The marinade is very simple – olive oil, lemon, soy sauce, salt & pepper. You can ‘fry´ it the next day and you have a quick dish. ;)
Easy Chicken Liver Recipe
- 500g chicken liver
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- ½ tsp pepper
- ¼ – ½ tsp salt
- Extra oil for ‘frying’
- Heat oil in your grill pan or frying pan.
- Add chicken livers and cook both sides (about 5 minutes each) or until slightly ‘burnt’.
- Garnish with cilantro or parsley (I believe cilantro is best) and squeeze some lime or lemon juice.
- Serve with bread, rice or can be eaten alone.
If you prefer to make this inside the oven, heat up your oven to 400F & bake for 15-20 minutes, making sure to flip them halfway of cooking.
Happy partying and have a wonderful weekend!!
