Southern Fried Chicken Livers
cayenne pepper (optional)
Melt shortening in a 12-inch cast iron skillet or heavy fry pan over medium heat.
Combine salt, paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Liberally season livers with this mixture. Dredge livers in flour and shake off excess.
Place livers into the pan and fry until cooked through, turning once.... dont overcook them, or they'll turn out chewy and bitter.
Drain livers on a rack over a sheet pan lined with paper towels
