RECIPE: Khayakazi Kepe’s Baked Chicken Liver Pâté


Food ambassador Khayakazi Kepe loved food before she knew she was good at it. Little did she know she’d build a career out of it, and she has big things coming with SPAR. For now, though, Kepe served us a delicious baked chicken liver pâté.

Ingredients (serves 6, prep 15 minutes, cooking 40 min)

  • 2 cups chicken livers trimmed with sinew (tough tissue on liver) removed
