Spiedies are most widely known in the Binghamton area of New York, where a 3 day
2-1/2 pounds chicken, cubed
1 cup olive oil
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
2-1/2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1-1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 tablespoon and 1-1/2 teaspoons crushed dried mint
1 tablespoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
6 wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
In a medium bowl combine the olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, garlic, garlic salt, oregano, garlic salt, mint, basil, and black pepper, whisking together. Place the chicken in a marinating container or gallon size zip-seal bag. We really recommend a marinating dish because this will set for up to 4 days in the fridge and your entire fridge will smell like spiedies if you use plastic.
Seal the container and shake until combined. Refrigerate for at least 24 Full hours- up to 4 days, shaking the container to turn the meat every 8 hours or so.
Soak Bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes. In the meantime, Preheat an outdoor grill on medium-high heat and lightly oil grate.
Skewer the meat with the soaked
Avoid overcooking the chicken or the meat will be very dry. Serve the grilled meat on thinly sliced Italian Bread or, if you prefer a "Grinder" type of sandwich, Italian Sub rolls.
