CarolCooks2 in my kitchen…Chicken and Mushroom Pate…


Good morning and welcome to my kitchen where all my recipes are cooked by me and tried and tested on my family…Trust me they are the harshest of critics…also it’s not long until Christmas Day so I will be trotting out some Christmassy Recipes all tried tested over the years and firm family favourites…today it a Chicken and mushroom pate…

Chicken and Mushroom Pate ( one of my grandson’s favourites) and so quick to make.


  • 450gm/11b Chicken Livers.
  • 4 Chestnut Mushrooms finely chopped.
  • 220gm/8oz Butter.
  • 2/4 cloves garlic finely chopped.
  • 2/3 banana shallots finely chopped or small brown onion.
  • 1 tbsp ish of Brandy.
  • 1tsp Mustard Powder.
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • 1 bay leaf and 3 cranberries for decoration.

Let’s Cook!

Melt 4oz of butter in a pan add chopped onions and cook until soft but not coloured. Add mushrooms about halfway through cooking.

Add garlic and chicken Livers and fry until cooked through.

Add hands wobbled at this stage and I deviated slightly from said recipe…I put 2 spoons in..haha.

Season well with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Place the Liver mix and 2oz of remaining butter in the food processor and blend until smooth.

Taste and season again with salt and freshly ground pepper.


Put in Ramekin or small dish, decorate with bay leaf and 3 cranberries ( I used small lime leaves as had no fresh bay leaves.

Chill and serve and enjoy!
