City "Chicken"

Grandma "B's" City Chicken


  • 1 lb. veal, cut into 1-1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 lb. pork, cut into 1-1/2 inch cubes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups seasoned Panko breadcrumbs
  • 3 Tb. oil
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut veal and pork into cubes.  Add minced garlic, cover and marinate at least one hour or overnight.

Thread skewers alternately with pork and veal pushing the pieces tightly together.  In a shallow bowl, mix egg, milk, salt and pepper.  Dip skewers into egg mixture, then in breadcrumbs to coat.  Let rest 10 minutes to set

In a large skillet, heat oil until hot.  Add skewers and saute about 4 minutes, or until browned on all side.  Place in shallow baking pan and add chicken broth.  Cover with foil and bake 1-1/2 hours until meat is tender.  Remove foil last ten minutes of cooking time.  I needed to add a little more chicken broth towards the end of the cooking time. Serve with mashed potatoes and pan juices.
