Chicken Liver Meatballs

Chicken livers are an excellent source of high quality protein and a rich source of Vitamins A, D and virtually all of the B vitamins. They are also relatively inexpensive so stock up and bake these easy meatballs.  I save a lot of time when making meatballs by using a cookie dough scoop.  They may not be perfectly round but Kirby doesn't seem to mind.

  • 1 to 2 lbs chicken livers*
  • 1 chopped green pepper
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon extra light olive oil
  • 1/4 cup parsley
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground egg shel l
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour


  1. Rinse and pat dry the chicken livers. Heat the olive oil in a medium size pan and saute the green pepper and spinach over medium heat.
  2. Add the garlic powder and chicken livers. Cook until the outsides are a light brown. Remove from heat and let cool.
  3. Puree the cooked mixture in a blender and pour into a medium size bowl. Add remaining ingredients and thoroughly combine.
  4. Add more flour if needed to form small meatballs. Coconut flour absorbs a lot of moisture so if using a different flour use only 1/3 cup.
  5. Place on lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until crispy and browned.

* Chicken livers are sold in small tubs ranging in weight. The one I used happened to weigh 1.37 lbs. Whatever size you get can be adjusted by the amount of flour.    

These will last covered in the refrigerator for about 4 to 5 days or in the freezer for several months.  Kirby likes them warmed for 30 seconds in the microwave.
