Fried Chicken Liver and spicy rice with mushrooms

Only liver I liked was rabbit’s liver . Even my kids when I cooked liver be it veal,beef ,lamb or chicken liver they east  a few mouthfuls then complain it tastes dry . Then I was watching Food Network and I saw the cook soaking the liver in milk before cooking it.I tried it that way soaking the liver an hour or so before cooking it ,then straining it and drying t with kitchen paper towels. A bit of work but totally worth it. The liver remains juicy and tastes sweeter .
