  • 12 slices bacon, halved crosswise
  • 12 ounces chicken livers, halved
  • 12 whole water chestnuts or pineapple


  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry

Rumaki begins with the marinade, of course: Combine soy sauce, ginger, sherry and sugar in a small bowl. Add the chicken livers and water chestnut pieces and marinate them in the refrigerator for 1/2 hour.

Place 1 chicken liver piece and 1 chestnut/pineapple piece in the center of each bacon-half, wrap, and secure with a toothpick.  Grill to perfection.  Place on platter and drizzle with Sweet & Sour Sauce.
