This was my first attempt at making my own orange and brandy chicken liver pate, and I’m pretty pleased with it.

I love pate but I don’t like the store-bought pate that has too many ingredients, additives, preservatives, and very little organ meat.

If you love pate, you’ll also love my garlic pate. Perfect served on mozzarella keto cheese crackers.

How to eat organ meat

We should all be eating more organ meat because it is so nutrient-rich. It is the original super-food. Organ meat is incredible because it is so nutritious and so cheap.

Organ meat is the most nutrient-dense part of the animal, packed with Vitamin B group, fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, magnesium potassium, copper, selenium ….. (see the table below).

Eating pate is my favourite and easiest way to incorporate organ meat into our diet.

Most cultures place high regard on eating organs and all other parts of the animal, but in Western society, many people regard organ meat should be reserved for their pets. By eating organs, we are utilising and respecting more of the animal, putting less pressure on intense farming.

For now, I will start to eat more organ meat by making my Orange and Brandy Chicken Liver Pate, but I will try and conjure up some more recipes for the future.


Anything with brandy in it is fabulous in my book (you know I love my boozy brandy truffles) so the addition of a small amount of orange in chicken liver pate makes it fresh without being too heavy.

  • chicken livers – try to find organic chicken livers
  • butter – salted butter is preferred
  • brandy – optional
  • heavy whipping cream
  • orange zest and juice

All quantities, ingredients, and instructions are in the recipe card below.

I’d love you to leave a comment on how do you cook and eat organ meat? What is your favourite recipe? Do you have any tricks or tips?

  1. Where do you get your liver meat from? that’s only thing holding me back from eating it, just can’t find it anywhere.

  2. I’m used to eating Pate on toast or crackers so I was wondering how you eat yours?

    1. I use slices of cucumber instead of crackers now. Take a look at my instagram as there are more pictures over there of snacks I make but don’t make it onto the website. You can also make wheat free crackers, but these take a little planning. I often have slices of cucumber topped with pate, or cheese, olives or anything else that would normally go on a cracker. So low in carbs, grain free and healthier.

    2. I have it on seed crackers.

  3. Is Brandy ok for LCHF? I have some other recipes I’d like to make which include brandy but wondered if I was going ‘off’ LCHF

      1. Thank you that is excellent news! I will try this recipe this week and I also have one for chicken breasts in brandy mustard cream sauce I will give a whirl too. Thanks again!

    Can the pate be frozen?

    1. I have frozen homemade pate and it was fine

  5. Liz Dafert says:

    Can I add cooked or raw onion?

    1. If you would like to add onion, I would add it raw with the butter and chicken livers cooking them gently, stirring occasionally as per recipe. The onions would make a lovely addition to the recipe, albeit with a stronger flavour.

  6. Another simple thing to do with chicken livers is to lightly fry them with onions in butter. The trick is to not overcook the liver, as it changes the texture.

    I just thought id suggest that another way to incorporate organ meats into your diet is to add them to your meat dishes (liver minced into the beef for spaghetti sauce etc. Plus the kids wont know and get all the benefits. I don’t know if anyone else has suggested this, but hey just in case!
    I made a chicken liver recipe and my daughter refused to eat it even though she LOVES chicken liver pate….
