"The term 'spiedie' (SPEE-dee) comes from 'spiedo,' the Italian word for spit, and simply refers to meat grilled on a skewer. This incredibly delicious sandwich, invented in central New York by an Italian immigrant named Camillo Iacovelli, breaks all the accepted rules regarding marinating meats, and not only does it work, it's amazing!" — Chef John

First time making these from scratch.I was buying Salamida State Fair Spiedie sauce.It was good,but Homemade is the best by far.These tasted like Lupo's, Spiedies in Endicott,NY.I'm not from that area,but I stopped and tried the Chicken Spiedie,& I was hooked. Everyone raved how great they were at my house.I also have a small food concession business,& guess what I'm serving next year.*Chicken Spiedies* Thanks Endicott.
Has potential but TOOOOO much vinegar taste.
Next time I will cut the vinegar in half and put tomato and cheese slices on the sandwiches.
My boyfriend and I took the chicken bits in a zip lock on our camping trip. We toasted the buns on the grill after brushing them with the reduced marinade. I swear I almost saw a single tear fall from his eye As he described the flavor. This is the best grilled chicken recipe either of us has ever tasted! I'm drooling just remembering it... Mmm.
Chef John, as always, YOU ROCK!! PEOPLE!! Read the recipe, FIRST! Then decide if it's for you! Don't trash a recipe just because it didn't suit you.
I am a college chef, in PA, with a ton of Central New Yorkers. I scale this recipe to feed 300 students! Thanks Chef John!!
Perfect summer grilling hand-held!
read other comments and did less vinegar but everything else as stated and it was really good. My son is extremely picky and he enjoyed the chicken flavor....so thank you
Too vinegary... It was alright, but it was definitely vinegar overload.
