I know the world loves stories before recipes, and by world I mean google (haha). However, I sit here and I have a three year old begging to “type” on the iPad. So today’s story (as usual) is going to be pretty short. Which, to be fair, is a benefit for you because that means you get to hit the recipe fast without scrolling through a giant wall of text. Scroll down for the full Instant Pot Mock Chicken recipe.
When I was a kid my dad used to make us mock chicken legs (also known as City Chicken). Oh boy! To top it off, the best side to go with Mock Chicken legs is “daddy’s famous fried potatoes”. I kept on the tradition and have made mock chicken legs in a frying pan for years for Kim and the kids. It’s always been a hit!
Now that we living that good old trailer life, I am only cooking with the Instant Pot and Air Fryer. (ohhh, and “cooking” with door dash as well, but shhhhhhh). I’ve been perfecting this recipe over the last year or so, and it’s finally ready to be formally written down (and video’ed). I did have to use lamb vs. veal, and to be honest I really did think that it was going to be a bust and I did all this work for nothing. HOW WRONG I WAS. They turned out AMAZING and honestly lamb might be my new go-to for Mock Chicken Legs forever.
I sure you hope you enjoy it as much as we did! PS – my video is up on YouTube, don’t forget to take a look and give it a “like” if you get a chance!

PS – We were not able to make daddy’s famous fried potatoes. However, we did make some air fried potato chips that were a pretty darn good substitute.
