City Chicken – Hey, Nice Legs!

Posted on

This fascinating pork on a stick recipe is American cuisine in a nutshell. City cooks, who couldn’t get chicken, would take scraps from much-cheaper-at-the-time pork, and build something similar to what you see here; but that’s not what makes this delicious mock drumstick so American.

 
 

 

 
Ingredients for 6 City Chicken drumsticks:
1 whole trimmed pork tenderloin (not loin), sliced as shown
6 bamboo skewers (6-inch are best)
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
cayenne to taste
dried thyme to taste
flour, beaten eggs, and panko breadcrumbs as needed
vegetable oil for frying
