Better Belly Blueprint Recipes
– Chopped Chicken Liver –

Dr. Al Danenberg Nutritional Periodontist

June 13, 2021

Liver is my go-to organ food. All the others are important, but liver is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet.

This recipe is reminiscent of my “Momma’s chopped chicken liver” in days gone by. It’s great either as a side or as a stand-alone main dish.

You could substitute beef liver if you preferred.

The photo includes some fresh, organic strawberries from a local farm.


  • 1 Lb pastured chicken livers, washed and dried with paper towel
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbs suet or ghee
  • 2 eggs, hard boiled and cut into pieces
  • Himalayan salt to taste
  • 1 Tbs Primal Kitchen Avocado Mayo – optional



  1. Heat suet or ghee in saucepan
  2. Add chopped onion and sauté; add salt to taste
  3. Add liver and cook livers until medium rare inside
  4. Place onions, liver, and eggs into chopper and chop (I use the Cuisinart Chopper/Grinder)
  5. If you want, you could add 1 tablespoon on Primal Kitchen Avocado Mayo to chopped liver to make smoother and more moist.
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Refrigerate
