Questions and Answers – Green Chicken Liver
I bought a whole chicken and cut it up for baking. Inside, we found a liver which was half green. First time this happened in 30 years. Liver is usually reddish. Do you know what this is? Is chicken safe to eat? Chicken looks fine otherwise.
This usually happens when the gall bladder, attached to the liver, sometimes breaks when it is removed, and some of the liquid runs on the liver and makes it green.
Any greenish part of the liver should be removed, because it will be very bitter. The liquid inside (the bile) is extremely bitter.
