Chicken Livers Royale
I'm a retired home economics teacher, but my son does most of the cooking around here. As a matter of fact, he created this delightful dish, which is truly "fit for a king"!
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min.
- 1/2 cup seasoned croutons
- 1 pound chicken livers, cut into bite-size pieces

- 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

- In a large skillet, saute chicken livers in 1 tablespoon oil for about 8 minutes or until outsides are lightly browned and centers are still slightly pink. Remove with a slotted spoon and place over croutons. Discard drippings from the skillet.
