Spiedini

new thingnew thing

While we anxiously await the start of the spring and summer season, we can already enjoy some of the fresh produce of the upcoming period. These grill sticks – spiedini in Italian – are delicious and fast to prepare, and fresh vegetables, like zucchini, bell pepper, eggplant and mushrooms are excellent options for grilling. Chicken and pork are the best meats, but because of chicken’s somewhat dry nature, it is best to wrap it in pancetta first. Vegetarians can replace the meat with tofu for equally yummy results.

Ingredients: 

2 chicken fillet, cut into cubes

100 gr/ 3.5 oz pancetta

1 zucchini

200 gr/ 7 oz mushrooms

salt and pepper to taste

olive oil for frying

Instructions: 

Cut the chicken fillets into cubes and slice the zucchini and the mushrooms. Wrap a piece of pancetta around each chicken cube. Arrange the sliced vegetables and the wrapped chicken cubes on the grill sticks. Fry them on a low heat until the chicken is tender and the vegetables have softened and released their juices. Serve with Italian bread, like schiacciata.
