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


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


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,
