This week Marianne talks about City Chicken, which strangely doesn’t have chicken at all! The reason why is interesting. Back in the early 1900’s through the Great Depression, chicken was actually more expensive than pork and veal. It was considered a luxury item for those living in the cities. City chicken is made of scraps put on a skewer and breaded like fried chicken. There was even a mold to make the shape of a chicken leg! Check out the recipe here, from the Polish Housewife or another from AllRecipies.
