City Chicken Barb Fankhauser's Style
INGREDIENTS
  • Pork cubes (or beef or both)
  • About 3-4 Egg yolks (give whites to animals if you don't feel like frying them up for yourself)
  • About 1- 2 TBS Milk
  • Flour
  • salt and pepper
  • Regular Seasoned bread crumbs
  • Vegetable oil
  • 4 inch Sticks for putting them on. Like shish kabob sticks only smaller

  2. Mix egg and milk together
  3. Put the cubes on the sticks
  4. Dip pork cubes in milk
  5. Dip in flour to coat them
  6. Dip back in egg mix (Do this dip quickly so you don't take off the flour you just put on)
  7. Roll in Breadcrumbs to coat all sides
  8. Add salt lightly or to taste
  9. Pan fry in vegetable oil 'till lightly browned on all sides
  10. Then put them in generously greased baking pan

RECIPE BACKSTORY
I remember my mom making this :) I think this recipe came from her friends here in Ohio. From what I've heard it seems to be made in the Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Indiana region. I think the original recipe calls for veal cubes w/ the pork but we refuse to eat baby animals!!! But adult beef tastes good too :)
