Chicken Liver Paté

firebus's picture

When we run out of stock and schmaltz we buy a whole chicken.

The breasts and legs are removed and usually frozen for later (sometimes the legs make confit).

The fat and skin is rendered into schmaltz.

The carcass - including wings and gizzard - are made into stock.

The liver and heart, and the meat picked from the boiled carcass become paté. The meat to liver ratio is a little high, so this is a relatively dry and textured pate, but the flavor is wonderful. You could easily double or triple the liver for a more traditional, unctuous, pate.
