Ingredients

  • 1 Pound chicken livers
  • 1/2 Cup ghee or clarified butter, melted (more if needed)
  • 3 sprigs of thyme
  • 2 shallots, finely diced
  • 1/4 Cup Madeira wine
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped

Directions

Set the Instant Pot to “Sauté” mode. Heat the ghee and sauté the shallots until translucent with a little salt and pepper, about 4 minutes. Add the thyme until fragrant, another 1 minute.

Add the chicken livers and sauté for a further 2 minutes. Cook until lightly colored but still pink inside, about 5 minutes total.

Add the wine and let it bubble for a minute. It might flame up; be careful.

Remove the thyme sprigs and transfer to a food processor, blending until smooth. Add more melted butter if needed and adjust the seasoning to your liking.

Push the pate through a sieve and serve with some fresh parsley as garnish.
