Replacing potted meat or liver spread with chicken liver.
¼ pound chicken liver
Boil chicken liver with pork belly for 20 minutes or until it’s done. Remove chicken liver.
Depending on your preference, chop liver into small cubes or mash liver into a spread. Set aside.
On the above instructions replace the potted meat or liver spread with chicken liver. Then follow the other instructions.
Note: I omitted grilling the pork belly after boiling it. If you want you could. But sitr frying it on medium heat delivers the same result. It is still very tasty with crusty edges.
We love lots of onion with sisig. We don't overcook the onions plus we serve raw onions on the side.
The recipe calls for 2 potted meat or 2 liver spread. Use one can first and taste if that is enough for you.
