    Default City Chicken Legs

    Growing up in the 50's and 60's
    we use to have what was called
    City Chicken Legs.
    Ground Pork and Veal put on a stick shaped like a chicken leg.
    Served with mint jelly.
    I think this might have been
    a midwest dish.
    Anyone else remember them?

    I didn't grow up here, so no. It sounds good though. I've had "city chicken" though. Skewered pork of some kind, it was good.

    As a rule I don't do veal, it's too cruel. Same with pate.
    Progressivism, ideas so good, they have to be mandatory.

    My mother had a recipe for what she called “City Chicken”. It was veal, pork, chicken, spices, breaded and fried. On a wooden skewer stick. It was great, but what a mess to make!

    She was from New Orleans, so she didn’t get it from the midwest. I’m not at home now, but I could copy it then to see if it matches yours.

    I grew up in a house with a trillion brothers. The last thing my mom would have done is give us sharpened sticks while herding us into close quarters. It would have been a bloodbath

    I do! It was one of my favorites as a kid! But when we moved to STL my mom couldn't find them in the stores anymore.

    That sounds exactly like it! I thought my mom got them from the store though; don't recall her making them by hand. Yes, please post the recipe when you're able, and thanks.

    LMAO!!!! Best morning laugh evuh.

    I only had two brothers and yeah, if the sharp eagle eyes of the parental units weren't on them, they would have been jabbing each other's eyes out with the sticks.

    Hey, even evil conservatives have to draw the line somewhere.

    I typically make it with pork loin cut in small cubes. Do you know where I can get some owl meat to make them. I heard it tastes like chicken.
