Brown bacon slices in a large heavy skillet over medium heat, then drain on
paper towels. Sprinkle chicken livers with salt & pepper and cook in bacon
drippings until well browned, removing to a plate as they are browned.

Add onions and mushrooms to skillet pan and cook, stirring, until mushrooms
are tender and lightly browned. Add garlic, basil, oregano and savory, then
blend in tomato paste, sherry and broth.

Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.
When sauce thickens, return chicken livers and any liquid that accumulated
while they stood to sauce and cook just until livers are heated thru, about
2 or 3 minutes. Adjust seasonings with salt & pepper. Sprinkle with parsley
and serve hot over rice, polenta or pasta. (Editorial note: After trying
all three, I very much prefer rice with this dish.)

Serves 4.
