City Chicken (Or Pork)

"A modified recipe from Grandma. She liked making kabobs from her meat and cooking it covered on the stovetop, but it tends to come out juicier and more flavorful with my modifications. The original recipe calls for pork, but it can also be made with chicken. I usually make it with pork chops. Easy and delicious- I have to remind my husband to leave leftovers or he'll eat it all! You can easily cook for a crowd by using chicken breasts, just use two pans to brown the meat."

  1. These were easy to make but a bit salty for us. I used prok chops and only put salt and pepper on them, I did not use the flour. Next time I would just use pepper. The gravy was good but salty. We did enjoy it.
  2. Made with pork chops, halved the recipe and used French Onion mix (it's what was in the store), served with mashed potatoes with some broth/onion mix juices poured on top. It was delicious! And the house smelled great while it was cooking too. :-) Thanks for the recipe.
  3. I love recipes from grandmothers. You can often find an easy classic & this is one. I used 4 thick cut boneless pork chops and reduced the oil to a Tbls in a non stick skillet. After browning I placed them in a casserole dish and sprinkled with 1 pkt of GOLDEN onion soup mix and 1 19oz can of low sodium chicken broth. After baking per the recipe the chops were fork tender & needed nothing else. This is comfort food all the way and mashed potatoes would be great with the thickened sauce in the pan. Made for Pick A Chef Spring '09!


As mother of a toddler, quick and easy recipes are my favorite for now, but whenever I can putter in the kitchen I love to. My husband is picky but loves most things Mexican, and most of my family recipes are due to my Slavic/German heritage. I will try anything once, and love mixing and creating my own recipes. I especially try to come up with low calorie dessersts to curb my sweet tooth while I'm watching my weight.
