City chicken, mashed potatoes and I'm hoping I have some frozen corn.

Kind of a quick throw-together dinner tonight. Grilled tuna steak with wasabi mayo and a pasta salad.

Jewish deli food. Yay! Brought half my reuben home - will eat for brunch after I have a check-up blood draw. The small price of getting older. But "getting older" beats the alternative.

Looks like you're on a chicken kick, Tom. What with the grilled drumsticks the other night

I too had "chicken". City chicken (pork and beef skewers).

i've always wondered where that term came from, pac.

city chicken. it almost sounds like a joke. you know, that it used to meow or squeak, but it tastes like chicken.


looks good, nonetheless. nice mashed taters and pool o' gravy..

I don't know. Maybe because it's breaded and fried/baked like chicken? Like in chicken fried steak? Or because it's on a stick so you can eat it like a drumstick?
Or you could be onto something...

I did my last service call, before Stone Crab season ends, to the Ochopee Fire Dept. yesterday. The Dept happens to be in Florida City. So I stopped at Grimm's Stone Crab and picked up some claws. We had the claws and I pan seared a couple of 4 oz tuna steaklets (is that a word?).

DH loves city chicken. I had never heard of it, so looked it up. During the Depression, cities started banning the raising of chickens, so they cost more. Pork and beef were cheap, so they made pretend drumsticks with them and called it city chicken.

I have never seen prepared city chicken in a store, but my in-laws say it used to be available in grocery stores in the Detroit area, where we're from. DH said the skewers I used were too big lol. Next time I made them, I left the pork chops whole. It's much, MUCH easier to make that way.
