Here is the recipe and some useful tips to best prepare the chicken spiedini, ideal for a perfect barbecue.
There is no barbecue without chicken spiedini. This fabulous main course can be prepared in a thousand different ways, but the most important ingredient is undoubtedly the meat, which must be of the highest quality and preferably lean. Also pay attention to cooking, which is why it is important to cut the meat into cubes of the same size so that each piece is cooked the same way.
For our recipe, we will use chicken, sausage, peppers and zucchini, which we will grill perfectly, but we will also see some variations of cooking: the one in the pan and the one in the oven.
Let’s get started: here is the recipe for chicken spiedini!
The ultimate trick to make skewers even tastier and tastier is marinating. Before cooking, in fact, it is important to leave the meat to marinate for a few hours with oil, white wine, peppercorns, and aromatic herbs such as bay leaves, thyme, and parsley for example. After a few hours, just drain the morsels and make the skewers alternating the meat with the chosen vegetables.
And if you want to try a variant, use a dark beer, which will give your dish a very special aroma that will conquer all your guests.
A tip: remember to heat the grill well, preferably non-stick, before placing the meat on it. Enjoy your meal!
Now let’s see some gems for anyone who wants to make this dish flawless and 100% perfect. First of all, let’s start with the softness of the skewers: an infallible secret is to use a lid, and to remove it about 5 minutes from the end of cooking. This way the steam will make the meat tender and succulent!
There are those who use steel skewers, but usually, it is customary to use wooden ones. If you don’t want to risk charring them during cooking, soak them in cold water for at least 15 minutes. You will avoid any risk!

Of course, it would be better to enjoy the skewers as soon as they are ready and still hot, however, if you have any leftovers you can always keep them in the refrigerator for a maximum of 1 day in a container with an airtight lid. We do not recommend freezing.
