A nostalgic comfort food




  1. Preheat the oven to 350
  2. Season pork with seasoning salt, and thread onto 4 inch skewers
  3. Set up three bowls or plates with rims in a row (fill one with flour, one with the eggs, and the last with breadcrumbs)
  4. Roll the pork skewers in flour, dip in the eggs coating all side, roll in the bread crumbs
  5. Heat oil to 350, even brown the pork skewers in the hot oil
  6. Place the skewers in a baking dish and cover with foil, bake for about 20 minutes, then remove foil and bake uncovered for 5 minutes to crisp breading


If you have a wire rack that fits in your baking dish, you might use it and add a little water to the bottom of your dish to steam your chicken city and keep it moist as it bakes.

Another possibility is to place the skewers on top of crumbled foil (to keep it out of the water) or on top of vegetables that you’re roasting at the same time. Because the “chicken legs” are only in the oven for 20 minutes or so, the vegetables will 1. need to be in thin pieces to cook during that time, 2. or they will be al dente, 3. or you could bake the veg a bit before or  after the meat.
