At our party this weekend, Nick and I took care of the main dish and had all our guests bring sides to share.
That kept us from being overwhelmed and we ended up with a great mix of food.
As soon as we talked about finally having this get together, Nick knew exactly what he wanted to make for the main dish.
Last summer, a friend introduced us to chicken spiedies at a cookout at his house, and we’ve been wanting to make them ever since.
From everything we know, this dish is really popular in areas of New York, and even though it sounds like a mix of things I would never put together on my own, it’s delicious!
For our spiedies, we marinated the diced chicken for 2 days in a mix of olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and spices.
On the day of the party, Nick put the chicken on skewers and grilled them to perfection.
Fold, eat, repeat.
I know – bread, butter, and grilled chicken? Not something I would think to eat together like this, but it works! It’s so simple, but so good.
Do you have any dishes that are regional to where you live or grew up?
