chicken in liver sauce

Think lechon is the only dish can do right with liver sauce? Think again! This stuffed roast chicken recipe gets its appeal from its rich sauce made from chicken liver, butter, and sherry wine. It gives that deep, velvety goodness, you didn’t know would go perfectly with poultry.   



Makes 6-8 servings


1 Whole chicken (about 1.2 -1.5 kilos)

  • Juice from 2-3 calamansi

1 Tbsp Rock salt


Rinse whole chicken and pat dry. Rub chicken with calamansi juice and rock salt all over. Set aside.

½ cup Chopped celery

½ cu p Evaporated milk

2 Tbsps Minced parsley

  1. In a bowl, mix the onions, celery, bread, evaporated milk, parsley, salt and pepper.
