1/1 Photo of Georgia's City Chicken
1 hrs 30 mins
There is no chicken in city chicken! It is a skewered meat dish that is simmered in chicken broth and eaten by hand, like chicken drumsticks. I got the beginnings of this recipe from my former mother in law. I tweaked it quite a bit so it's pretty different from her original. The original called for veal, pork, and beef. I don't eat veal, and it works fine without it. It can be a pain in the patoot to make, so when I do it, I make plenty (40 or more skewers). This recipe is scaled down to make 20 skewers, but you can upscale or down scale it easily. They freeze well. You'll need about 2 beef and 2 pork cubes for each skewer. In general, I use a large electric skillet for both the searing and the simmering, although I have used a standard fry pan to sear and packed the skewers vertically into a large crock pot for the simmer. Some places actually have meat already cut for City Chicken; if so, get that; it will cut your prep time terrifically!! . If not, a Boston Butt Roast for the pork will cut fine as will a good Beef Roast. I use the 6" City Chicken Skewers when I can get them as they aren't as long and skinny as the longer bamboo ones. However, if the skinny long ones are all you can get, just cut them in half and be careful not to stab yourself as skewer the meat. You can also use chicken boullion cubes in water to substitute for the chicken stock. Sorry this is not more precise as to amounts, but it's a very flexible recipe, meant to be tweaked to your family tastes!
