City Chicken


4 lb. pork tenderloin, cut into cubes

Short skewers

1/2 c. flour, seasoned to taste.  I used 2 tsp Mango Marsala Curry Salt and 1 tsp. garlic powder

2 eggs

3/4 c. seasoned panko bread crumbs

Olive oil

Foil to wrap the “chicken legs”

Coat pork cubes completely with flour mixture by tossing in a large zip lock bag  Put on skewers.


Prepare breading station by putting beaten eggs in one bowl and panko bread crumbs in another.


Tear pieces of foil, one for each “leg” and set aside.

Preheat oven to 376 F.

Spin each “leg” in egg and then in panko bread crumbs.

Spray foil piece with coconut oil spray.  Place “leg” on foil at an angle.  Drizzle with olive oil and wrap.  I did one at a time instead of  laying out all the pieces of foil.


Place “legs” on baking sheet and bake for 1 hour.

I had previously made pork cubes and baked them without putting them on skewers.  These were less dry and delicious!  I served with fried potatoes.

City Chicken and Smashed Red Creamer Potatoes

3 lb. cubed pork tenderloin

1/2 c. seasoned flour

2 eggs

1 c. seasoned panko bread crumbs

Trim and make pork cubes uniform size.

Toss with flour.

Toss with egg

Coat with Panko.

Place in a single layer in 13 x 9 baking dishes.

Bake at 325 for 1 hour.

I haven’t had city chicken in 38 years.  My mom used to put the cubes on small stubby skewers and make them like chicken legs.  I just did cubes.  She also fried them first, but I opted for just baking.

I served this with smashed potatoes and gravy.

I was transported back in time!!!  The kids loved loved loved this.  We will have it regularly!!
