This is my Dad's specialty when it comes to cooking, (meaning he is only good at a few things). He got this recipe out of our local newspaper many, many years ago and over the years his had tweaked around with it and has perfected it his way. So I'll share it will you and I hope you all enjoy it like we do.

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley

  • salt and pepper
  • oil (for browning meat)

I made this for a dinner party a few weeks ago. None of our guests had ever had it and it turned out so good! We used all pork and marinated it overnite with onions and garlic in a ziploc bag. Excellent and TENDER!!

I was so happy to find a City Chicken that sounds almost exactly like my grandmother's! It is delicious! I think Nanna may have done the second coating in cracker crumbs rather than bread crumbs, but I think either way is fine. I don't think she used cheese, but that makes it even better. I never realized City Chicken has so many calores...oh well, it's worth it once in awhile.

The only change I made was to add about a cup of chopped celery to the top of the city chicken while baking. This was an excellent recipe - just like my grandma used to make!
