    Pork on a skewer that makes you think of fried chicken. On old boyfriends Aunt taught me to make this, so all measurements are approximate. She lived for many years in upstate NY and I think this is an Eastern European type of dish.

      My Polish family makes City Chicken the exact same way, so you're right, it might very well be an Eastern European thing. I believe it comes from an era when pork was cheaper than chicken, for chicken was sent off to feed soldiers or something. My mother would also alternate the pork cubes with veal cubes on the skewers, but I don't use the veal anymore. Anyhow, these are delicious with mashed potatoes and gravy. I also like to squeeze a fresh lemon over them before finishing the baking in the oven. Delicious.
