First, I know that unless you are part of my family, you are likely saying, "Huh? What are spiedies?" (SPEE-dee)? They are a marinated meat, typically chicken, traditionally lamb, that are grilled on a skewer. These delicious and tender bits of cubed meat are often served on Italian bread or even hot dog rolls. They are a regional food to the Binghamton, New York area, close to where we grew up (though we both grew up in Pennsylvania). You can read a bit more about the history here if you like, but that is the run-down. (Correct me if I'm wrong!)
I recently went to visit our families, and after eating some pizza with chicken spiedies as a topping, I decided it was time to make my own spiedies. From scratch. Chicken spiedies from a recipe. Not from the spiedie sauce that you can buy. (It is shockingly even at my local Acme, though I can't imagine anyone here in southeastern PA knowing what a spiedie is!)
These spiedies are plenty to make one sandwich.
Well, I did it! And they were GOOD! My husband let me know it, too! We had my mom and stepdad visiting for the weekend, and they enjoyed them, too. (I think my mom was shocked that I wanted to try a new recipe. She has a crockpot recipe that she uses for spiedies, though Derek and I like traditional spiedies best. But if anyone is interested...I can share hers. She even won an award for her recipe!)
As usual, I got the recipe from allrecipes.com. (Click title below to go directly to that recipe.) You might tire of hearing that from me, but I think it's important to tell you where I get my recipes, unless of course, I come up with it.
(Shockingly, I remembered to take a picture.)
