Cajun Dirty Rice with Chicken Liver and Shrimp

Chicken liver, shellfish, and bone broth all in one dish? Sounds like nutrient-dense heaven! It helps that this dish is absolutely delicious and packed with flavor, and a breeze to throw together.

I got this recipe from and modified it slightly.


1 lb chicken livers

1 lb shrimp

2 cups cooked long-grain rice

1 1/2 cups bone broth

Cajun seasoning

1 bunch parsley, chopped finely

4 cloves garlic, sliced

2 tbsp all-purpose flour, or white rice flour, if gluten-free

Cooking fat of choice - I used lard

2 tbsp butter

Salt and pepper

Chop chicken livers into small pieces. In a large pan, sauté chicken livers in fat until cooked, about 5 minutes.

Remove liver from pan and set aside. Add a few tablespoons of cooking fat to the pan and cook until melted. Add flour and stir rapidly. Add bone broth, garlic, a few tablespoons of Cajun seasoning, and salt and pepper. Stir rapidly, it should form a nice thick roux in a minute or two.

Add chicken liver and stir for a minute. Add rice, shrimp, parsley, and butter. Continue stirring for a few minutes until shrimp is cooked through, about 3 minutes. Taste and add seasoning as necessary.

Serve immediately and enjoy!
