  • 3 large chicken breasts cut into cubes
  • 4 Italian rolls
  • 2 tablespoon butter melted

Marinade Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Garlic sauce

  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 6 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1 egg white*
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Garlic Sauce

  • Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth, it should take 1 to 2 minutes. This recipe will make about 1 1/2 cups of sauce, refrigerate leftover sauce.


  • 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. Prep time does not include time for marinating chicken.
  2. *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.
  3. The Chicken Spiedies will last in the fridge in an air tight container for 3 – 4 days. If you’d like to freeze this dish I recommend freezing the chicken in the bag with the marinade while still raw, then when it defrosts it will marinate and you can skewer it and pop it on the grill from there!
  4. You can store this homemade garlic sauce for up to 2 weeks in the fridge in an airtight container. I don’t recommend freezing this sauce as it is similar to a homemade mayo which separates and becomes unusable after thawing.
  5. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
