Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
A can or 2 of sliced water chestnuts.
A bunch of fresh chicken livers.
Soy sauce.
Bacon slices, cut in half.
Salt, pepper or other spice as desired.
Some ordinary WOOD toothpicks.

Directions:
Directions:
Remove liquid and rinse the chicken livers. Cut them into about 1 1/2 - 2 times the size of bite-sized pieces. Marinate the chicken liver pieces in soy sauce in the fridge for maybe an hour or two. Other spices such as salt or pepper as desired.
Top each each chicken liver piece with a slice of canned water chestnut. Wrap these each in a 1/2 length slice of uncooked bacon, securing each appetizer with an ordinary wood tooth pick stuck through everything - through the middle. Do not use the pretty toothpicks - just ordinary ones made only of wood. Put the pieces on a microwave-safe plate lined with a paper towel or two. Cover with a paper towel. Microwave on high for several 30 second intervals, turning/rotating as needed, until the bacon is cooked and the liver looks cooked also, perhaps gray in color and certainly not pink or red. Tell your guests that you learned this recipe from your mother-in-law. In any event, these are nutritious snacks in spite of the bacon and sodium, especially for people who otherwise would never even look at any kind of liver.

At parties, there were never any of these left. But don't let pets try to eat the toothpicks...
