Tips on Making Chicken Livers and Wild Rice

Things You’ll Need:
 
Wild Rice Mix
  • Water
  • Knife
  • Cutting board
  • 1 pound chicken livers
  • Camping stove
  • 1 medium sized pot
  • Vegetable/Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic
  • Spoon
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 package wild rice mix
 
Step 1
Rinse the chicken livers, and cut each in half until you have all the livers cut up.
Step 2
Place approximately 4 tablespoons of either vegetable or olive oil into the pot. Light the camping stove and place the pot on the burner. Turn the heat to medium.
Step 3
Put the chicken livers into the pot and sauté them until they are almost done. Turn the heat slightly lower if the chicken livers begin to cook too fast. Season with salt, pepper and garlic to taste.
Step 4
Chop the onion into medium-sized pieces and slice the carrot into circular pieces while the chicken livers cook. Place the chopped vegetables into the pot with the livers and continue cooking for approximately five more minutes.
Step 5
Pour the wild rice into the pot with the livers and stir. Add the specified amount of water per the instructions on the package. Add an additional 1/2 cup of water to account for the addition of the livers and veggies.
Step 6
Turn the heat up higher and bring the chicken livers and wild rice to a boil, stirring well. Turn the heat down to simmer. Place the lid on the pot and allow the mixture to cook 10 minutes longer than specified on the wild rice package. For example, if the package says it will take 30 minutes for the rice to cook, cook it for 40 minutes instead.
Step 7
Remove the lid after the specified cooking time and check for doneness. If fluid can still be seen, replace the lid and allow the livers and rice to cook for an additional five minutes and check again. Stir before serving.
