Pork and sauerkraut dishes are part of every Eastern European restaurant menu, and the main ingredients are a popular staple in every household.
You don’t have to wait for a nice outdoor weather, or even own a grill, to enjoy a delicious rack of barbecue ribs. This recipe is very simple, and all baked in your oven.
Europeans love their soup, as anyone who traveled to Eastern Europe would agree that soup in part of every lunch and dinner menu.
Soups are quite simple to prepare, and very nutritious as well. You can make your own stock, as the base for every soup, or use the ready-made available at your grocer. There is such a variety of broth now…chicken, beef, vegetable, low-fat, low sodium….so it makes it that much easier to get your soup cooking together.
I loved my mom’s cooking. She had limited resources, but always managed to prepare delicious meals for our family and friends.
I inherited her love of cooking and baking, and am a very lucky recipient of her hand-written recipes. She loved collecting and trying different recipes, as much as I do.
The family tradition continues, as my daughter and granddaughter also enjoy culinary arts.
I am not sure why this dish is called City Chicken, while it is actually made out of pork. Maybe it was popular in the days when chicken was more expensive than pork, so chefs tried to be creative.
