NMS Covenant: Almost Spiedies

I finally got another chance to do a "No More Sandwiches" meal! It's about time :)

So I had a leftover piece of grilled chicken and some onions and I needed lunch fast. Hmmmm...a chicken and barbecue sauce sandwich? Never! A quick Google search brought up a suggestion for "Almost Spiedis". A spiedie (pronounced: speedy) is a dish from Greater Binghampton in New York State, and according to Wikipedia "consists of cubes of chicken, pork, lamb, veal, venison or beef. The meat cubes are marinated overnight or a special marinade, then grilled on spits...over a charcoal pit."

Now as I was trying to come up with a meal that could be made in about five minutes, I obviously wasn't going to make the authentic thing, but my little dish was inspired by it. I threw a bunch of stuff in a skillet (the chicken had been grilled to perfection a few days before) and ate it just like that. I probably overdid it somewhat on the heat (you see the poor blackened peppers), but it gave everything an interesting crunch--and I was in a hurry.

So do you want to make it yourself? You'll need
  • Olive oil
  • About a capful of apple cider vinegar
  • Sliced onions and bell peppers
  • Fresh garlic
  • A precooked chicken breast
  • Salt, pepper, and Italian seasonings
The apple cider vinegar was an interesting touch, and I think it added something special. A great way to make a more filling meal (this was more of a side-dish for me) would be to pile it all on top of a thick slice of soft Italian bread, or going all-out and actually skewering everything, marinating it, and throwing it on the grill.
