From the kitchen of Kay Putano. This marinades for 2-3
DAYS (at least 2 nights) so plan ahead. The name comes
from the Depression years. In the country, people kept
chickens and could have fried chicken when they wanted.
In the city, chicken was hard to come by; so they created
their own from chunks of pork and veal which were much
less expensive then. The skewers of pork and veal
looked like a chicken leg when breaded.
