The ingredients are relatively common around the kitchen or easy to pick up at a local market.The secret to this fine tasting chicken marinade sauce is in how the ingredients are mixed.
As with any recipe mixing the spices and other key ingredients will sometimes need to be added in a particular order otherwise the sauce or marinade may not have the right consistency or flavor which is part of what makes this recipe so special.
If you are not familiar with chicken spiedies here is a brief history about spiedies.
The term "spiedie" comes from the Italian "spiedo" meaning spit or "spiedini" referring to cubes or balls of meat cooked on a skewer.The original idea came from Italy brought over by Italian immigrants in the 1920's to the Upstate New York region.
Spiedie choices consist of cubes of chicken, pork, lamb, veal, venison or beef. The meat cubes are marinated overnight or longer in a special marinade, then grilled on wooden skewers. When using steel skewers they are called "spiedie rods" and then grilled over a charcoal grill. The cooked spiedies can then be skewered into a Italian bread roll and served. Also spiedies can be eating right off the wooden skewer or served with other dishes.
Rob Salamida became the first person to bottle spiedie marinade in 1975 with the name Salamida's Original State Fair Spiedie Sauce and it is the highest selling spiedie marinade.
There is a Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally in Binghamton, New York that has been celebrated every August, since 1983. This annual event includes a spiedie cook-off in search of the best spiedie recipes.
