  • Yield: 2 dozen


  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon minced gingerroot
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 12 ounces chicken livers, rinsed, drained and cut into 24 pieces
  • 4 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 (4-ounce) can water chestnuts, drained and cut into 24 pieces
  • 12 slices bacon, cut in half lengthwise
  • Skewers or toothpicks


  • In a shallow bowl, combine the soy sauce, sherry, ginger and garlic. Add the chicken livers and toss to coat. Let marinate refrigerated for 2 to 4 hours.
  • Place the oil in a deep pot or a fryer and heat to 350 degrees F. Place the bacon flat on a work surface and scrape with the back of a knife to prevent from shrinking while cooking. Remove the livers from the marinade and pat dry. Place 1 chicken liver piece on each bacon half and top with a water chestnut slice. Roll up to enclose the livers and chestnuts in the bacon. Secure with a toothpick or long skewer.
  • Carefully add to the hot oil in batches. Fry until golden brown and the livers are cooked through, about 3 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Remove the skewers or toothpicks and place the rumaki on a platter. Serve immediately.
