Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Add the chicken livers to the pan and sear on both sides until golden brown (do not cook through, they will continue cooking in the rice).
Remove the livers with a slotted spoon to a cutting board, let cool slightly and coarsely chop.
Add the onions, peppers, celery, garlic, and serrano chile to the pan and cook until golden brown. Stir in the rice and cook for 2 minutes. Add the stock, maple syrup, chicken livers and season with salt and pepper, stir well and bring to a boil. Cover the pan, reduce the heat to medium, and continue cooking for 12 to15 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the parsley and thyme and fluff with a fork.
