Place chicken livers in a large bowl, and pour in 3 tablespoons olive oil, vinegar and lemon juice; season with garlic, cumin, coriander, chilli flakes, bay leaves, salt and pepper. Stir together, and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
Remove livers to a bowl, and reserve marinade.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Stir in onion, and cook until tender, about 7 minutes.
