“We love having chicken spiedini at a local italian restaurant. I found this recipe in our local newspaper and gave it a try. We thought it was great and I hope you will too. It's a good choice for a summer cook-out. If I am short on time, I prepare the chicken as directed, but skip the rolling/skewering and simply grill it. Just as tasty and very easy.”
