If you've never had City Chicken before, TRY IT! My husband grew up on it; as soon as he walked in our front door, he knew what I was making! He thought I called his mom for the recipe! A batch of mashed potatoes & gravy, a tossed salad, and you'll be in heaven!



I can't believe someone actually posted a recipe for City Chickens! I'm 47 (2006) and ate City Chickens as a young child when visiting my Polish grandparents who lived in Pittsburgh. Thanks Diane for posting this recipe! It is truly one of my favorite dishes!



My family really enjoyed this city chicken. I have made city chicken before using the flour>egg wash>bread crumbs and flour>egg wash>crushed crackers methods, but I was looking for a simpler version. I enjoyed this more than the breaded versions. I did not cook it in the skillet, after browning the city chicken, I baked it in the oven at 325 for an hour and half (in the bay leaf/thyme chicken broth). This will now be our standard city chicken.
