      The BEST ever!! Reminds me of City Chicken at the Polish Village Cafe in Hamtramck, Mi!! Sometimes I double the gravy that goes over the top... I serve with Sour Kraut (1/2 Polish and 1/2 Bavarian), Red-Skinned mashed potatoes and green beans! Also, I serve hot Polish Dill Pickle Soup before the meal! A great traditional Polish dinner! I need to put my Dill Pickle Soup recipe on here. It's to die for! Thank you for this GREAT recipe!!!

      What a great dish!! My aunt made this for us when I was little and now I am the only one left who can make it. I have handed down this recipe to my kids in hopes they will carry on the tradition. I use breadcrumbs instead of the crackers but have had it many times with crackers when no breadcrumbs were available. Thanks so much for submitting this awesome Polish dish!!

      My normally reserved son called this "Heaven on a Stick". The pork I used was very lean but came out extremely moist and flavorful.
