This was tonight's dinner. I decided to adapt a recipe for Spiedini sandwiches - a popular food item in Binghamton, NY - meat that is marinated, skewered, cooked on a grill and then put in white bread. I didn't want to make a sandwich so I just cooked the chicken, then I boiled the marinade, and served it with some cooked mushrooms, green beans and some rice.

Serving Ideas : green beans and rice
NOTES : The original has the meat cut into cubes and put on skewers after marinating for 24 hours. Served in rolls or bread as a sandwich.
* I didn't grill these. I cooked it in a large pan with a bit of olive oil.
** I drained the marinade, and put it in towards the end and let it boil so it would be safe to eat.
Real Spiedini are skewered meats (chicken, beef or pork) that is marinated for a long time and then cooked like kabobs, served in white bread. It is a very popular dish in Upstate NY around Binghamton.
