Chicken Spiedies

Cate MacKrell

 

  

We did a wonderful event at the Garden the other evening called Herbs & Hors d'oeuvres.  All the hors d'oeuvres were herb themed.  So many delicous items, and what a great group of guests!

I have had many folks ask about the Chicken Skewers.  They are Chicken Spiedies and are a regional favorite in only one area of NY.  Mint and vinegar are key ingredients for the marinade.  Marinating at least 24 hours is also key.

Spiedies are always grilled and then folks like to take a slice of Italian bread and remove the chicken to create a sandwich.  Restaurants all serve this special treat and I'm glad I was able to share it with so many folks.

Chicken Spiedies

Ingredients

3 chicken breasts

1/3 cup olive oil

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/4 cup white vinegar

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1/2 cup fresh mint, chopped

1 Tbps. dried parsley

1 Tbps. dried basil

1/2 tsp. dried oregano

1/2 tsp. garlic salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

Directions

Dice chicken breasts into 1" cubes. Whisk all other ingredients together to form marinade. Set some aside for basting or sauce if desired. Add marinade to chicken and refrigerate overnight, stirring occasionally (the acidic nature of the marinade wll 'chemically' cook the meat partially). Thread 5 or so cubes onto metal or soaked bamboo skewers and grill for a few minutes either side, just until meat is firm (remember, they're already partially cooked by the marinade). Place skewers on a fresh Italian bread, grip the meat firmly with the bread and pull out skewers.
Be well & enjoy,

Memorial Day Salad

Cate MacKrell

As we prepare for our Memorial Day gatherings, try this healthy patriotic salad.  Quinoa is one of my favorite ancient grains.  It is gluten free and is considered one of nature's perfect foods.

Add some blueberries, strawberries, a touch of olive oil and orange juice to liven this salad. This salad is vegan and works well perfect for a picnic.

This Memorial Day take a moment to remember those who sacrificed for us.  Although Memorial Day is dedicated to those who have passed, it is also fitting to remember our veterans who have served for our country.  Thanks to all the Veterans out there!

Be well & enjoy,

Tamara

Organic Herb of the Month

Cate MacKrell

Sage is the organic Herb of the month. Sage is considered one of natures perfect Herbs as it is full of vitamins and anti-oxidants. Sage is a perrenial and pretty easy to grow. It loves warm weather and a good supply of water.

Many folks relate Sage to Thanksgiving and the wonderful stuffings they grew up with. Unfortunately, Sage doesn't get used in recipes as much as it deserves. Try fresh organic Sage with Seafood, Pasta or fresh Fruit Teas. Sage will lend a balance and freshness to your recipes.

Sage is a natural detoxifier! Give it a try.
