Directions:

  1. In large frying pan, melt butter.
  2. Add chopped chicken livers (including liquid), onions, garlic powder, and seasonings. Sauté mixture over medium-high heat with cover off pan for five minutes to get onions golden.
  3. Add potatoes. Cover with lid and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes to steam potatoes until they are semi-soft.
  4. Toss in mixed frozen vegetables. Cover again with lid and cook another five minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. At this point, as long as your potatoes are fork tender, you can turn the heat off.
  5. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  6. Spray an 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray and pour in liver mixture.
  7. For gravy -- In a saucepan, boil 2 cups water, bullion cubes, and seasonings together. Add butter and melt. Over low-medium heat, slowly add flour and quickly whisk until a smooth gravy develops. If your gravy is too thick, add a little water. If too thin, add a bit more flour.
  8. Pour finished gravy into 8x8 pan that contains liver mixture. Mix gravy in to combine ingredients.
  9. Place pie crust over top and shape edges as desired. Brush with milk to slightly moisten. Poke surface of crust with fork in different spots about eight times.
  10. Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until crust is golden. Enjoy!
