Chicken Spiedies with Herb Mayonnaise
Spiedini is an Italian dish made by skewering chunks of meat or fish, then grilling over a flame. This sandwich hybrid, spiedie, is made with cubed chicken breast that’s marinated, skewered, then grilled.
The marinade is easy to make and packed with fresh ingredients, like parsley, basil, and lemon zest. If you have other fresh herbs on hand, like oregano, mint, or cilantro, throw them in too — the more the merrier.
Test Kitchen Tip
A quick 30-minute bath is all this chicken needs to be infused with flavor, but you can marinate the chicken up to a day in advance.
Whisk together oil, lemon zest, basil, parsley, scallion, garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Add chicken, toss to coat, then cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.
Combine 4 Tbsp. mayonnaise, lemon zest, basil, parsley, salt, and pepper for the herb mayonnaise.
Heat a grill pan or grill over medium; coat with nonstick spray.
Slice rolls horizontally almost all the way through. Spread remaining 1 Tbsp. mayonnaise on cut sides of rolls and grill, cut sides down, until toasted, 2–3 minutes. Spread herb mayonnaise on cut sides of rolls.
Arrange chicken on rolls and serve immediately.
