City Chicken

I grew up eating my gram’s city chicken..I didn’t remember how she made it so I asked my mom and she told me how to over the phone..Not very hard at all!They sell kits like this in grocery stores in Pittsburgh..It is made with pork because the recipe originated around the great depression and apparently pork was cheaper than chicken at the time so that’s what people used.Its a fun dish to make and would be good if your having company for dinner..

All-Pork City Chicken in Pittsburgh, PA

I couldn’t find the kits here so this is the kind of pork I had to use..

I started by cutting the pork into about 1 inch cubes.

Then you thread them onto skewers that are about 4 to 5 inches long..(I soaked mine in water for about 5 hours,but I suppose you don’t need to unless your grilling them)

Make a breading station with two pie plates(I find these work the best for breading)With eggs and seasoned bread crumbs.

Once all the skewers are breaded,you fry them in about 2 inches of vegetable oil for about 5 minutes per side.

Once you fry all the skewers place them on a lightly sprayed foil lined cookie sheet and cover with foil,then bake in oven at 350 for about 35 to 40 minutes so the pork becomes nice and tender.
