History

During the Great Depression, veal and pork were much less expensive than chicken, especially in urban city locations.  The term ‘city chicken’ was an entrée consisting of cubes of meat (either pork or pork and veal) threaded onto a wooden skewer, breaded, deep fried and then baked to resemble a fried chicken leg.
