It’s time for chicken livers to return to the menus of New Orleans restaurants. We used to get them all the time in all sorts of dishes but rarely anymore. A particular favorite of mine was the chicken liver omelet at the Coffee Pot. The Praline Connection made a hit with pepper jelly–coated fried chicken livers. I borrowed that idea as well as the old rumaki concept from Chinese restaurants to give you this dish. It’s absolutely spectacular served over a plate of red beans and rice.
