City Chicken (aka, Fake Chicken) is a traditional Polish-American dish that is beloved by many. The most curious thing about this dish is that it doesn't actually contain any chicken. Rather, your featured protein here is actually pork and/or veal
Cast Iron Skillet
- 2.5 lbs Pork and or Veal cubed into 1.5-inch pieces
- 2 Eggs beaten
- 1 cup Flour all-purpose
- 1.5 cup Bread Crumbs
- Salt or Season Salt and Pepper sprinkled all over the meat
- Oil for Frying
Prepare 3 prep-dishes: one for flour, one for beaten eggs and one for breadcrumbs. Starting with the flour, cover the meat on each side (shaking off the excess), then place it into the egg mixture and cover on each side. Then finish it up by rolling it in breadcrumbs, on each side. Continue with all the remaining skewers.
Heat up your cast iron (or another heavy pan) skillet. Add cooking oil (enough to cover the bottom of the pan). Once the oil is hot, add breaded skewers into the skillet (don't overcrowd them, cook in batches if needed and add more oil in between the batches). Fry the skewers on each side until golden brown for 2-3 minutes on each side. While frying the meat, preheat your oven to 350F.
