This recipe has a little deviation from the original recipe because I dredged the liver in flour and pan-fried it first before making it into an adobo dish. The traditional recipe do not do it this way. I deviated in order to give the liver a better texture and to thicken the sauce of this adobo dish. I also love the flavor of fried chicken liver and I thought that it helped improved the overall taste of the dish.

You see, chicken liver is full of flavor; it is the reason why Sisig recipes always call for it. Imagine how flavorful this dish is, and that is why I had my rice consumption doubled when I had it.
