Chef John's City Chicken
See what happens when a simple country chicken heads to the bright lights of the big city. First of all, it becomes pork. Because this breaded-and-fried meat-on-a-stick is actually made with chopped pork tenderloin (or, if you prefer, pork shoulder). Basically, it’s a mock chicken drumstick. In the video, you’ll get the fascinating backstory and see how to form the seasoned, breaded pork into something that resembles a chicken drumstick. (Just enough to fool the city kids, anyway.) Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's City Chicken. Fried to golden brown, these delicious drumsticks are even yummier dipped in honey mustard.
