Here are some tips that might come in handy when making fried chicken livers in gray:

  • Rinse the liver. Before anything else, rinse your liver in cold water and let it drain. 
  • Soak the liver in milk. If you want to subdue its sharp raw taste, you can soak it in milk for 20 to 30 minutes. Although for some, cooking it without soaking it in milk gives their meat a more savory flavor. 
  • Adjust the consistency of the gravy to your liking. You can use flour to thicken the mixture. If it’s too thick, add a little bit of milk and whisk it to desired consistency.
  • Do not overcook the livers. Upon frying chicken livers, overcooking will break down its texture. So, carefully brown them lightly.
