I really loved this sandwich. The garlic I used was a little on the strong side, but that worked well with the sandwich once it all came together. Make sure you butter and grill the roll it makes all the difference. I did it in the toaster oven when I made leftovers and it didn’t taste as good.
Marinated Chicken Spiedies with Garlic Sauce
(Adapted from Jo Cooks)
3 large chicken breasts, cut into cubes
4 Italian rolls
2 tbsp butter, melted
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup lemon juice
¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
In a small bowl whisk together the marinade ingredients. Place the chicken in a ziploc bag and pour the marinade over the chicken, seal the bag, toss to combine. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours up to overnight.
When ready to cook turn on your grill to medium high heat. Clean and oil the grill.
Cut the rolls lengthwise and brush the inside of the roll generously with butter.
Thread the chicken on 4 skewers, making sure to divide the meat equally among the skewers.
Grill the chicken on all sides, about 3 minutes per side, until chicken is cooked and starts to brown. Place the rolls on the grill and let them grill for about 2 minutes or until the bread starts to brown.
In each roll lay a grilled skewer inside. Gripping the roll at the bottom, carefully slide skewer off, leaving meat in the bread. Drizzle generously with the garlic sauce.
1 cup vegetable oil
⅓ cup lemon juice
6 cloves garlic, peeled
1 egg white*
1 tsp salt
Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth, it should take 1 to 2 minutes. This recipe will make about 1½ cups of sauce, refrigerate leftover sauce.
*If you don’t want to use raw egg whites in the garlic sauce, you can omit it, just add the oil little by little to the blender until it thickens and should have the consistency of mayonnaise.
