It’s also very easy to make this recipe AIP compliant by omitting the paleo mayo and black pepper in the slaw recipe.  Simply increase the coconut milk to 3 tablespoons and add a splash of lemon juice. Easy peasy!

This is a great recipe for those trying to add more offal into their diets.  Chicken livers are very mild in flavor.  This recipe would also be great with chicken gizzards.  The trick is to add a variety of textures and flavors to your offal dish.  So, give this recipe a try.  You may discover you actually like liver!
