Mom’s City Chicken – an Old Favorite


Mom’s City Chicken

My mom’s city chicken was a family favorite growing up. It’s an easy to make weeknight meal. 


I grew up eating city chicken a lot as a child and never once did I wonder why it was called that seeing as there’s no chicken involved. Recently my father in law, who used to be a butcher, explained that back in the day chicken was more expensive than pork and veal so people made city chicken, which is essentially cubes of pork and veal on a stick that is breaded to act as chicken. He’s a big fan so when I had to come up with a regional food to make for this weeks Sunday Supper, my mom’s city chicken was my first choice. Ok it was my third but I wanted to make it for my father in law and I think you are really going to love it.
