Spiedies are the pride and joy of the Greater Binghamton area of N.Y. They are such an important part of life there that the biggest party of the year celebrates them - The Spiedie Festival and Balloon Rally brings thousands into the area every summer. Chunks of chicken (my favorite), pork, lamb (traditional) or venison are marinated in a mixture of oil, vinegar and herbs for 1 to 3 days, skewered, grilled and served on Italian bread with no condiments.
Boneless chicken breasts simmer for hours in the slow cooker with green salsa, tomatoes, beans, corn, and seasonings to make an easy one-dish meal with a creamy sauce. Make it thick for a stew or thinner for a soup.
Italian salad dressing does wonders for chicken breasts, especially if they are left to marinate for several hours in the fridge. Then just before grilling, each breast gets a sprinkling of lemon pepper.
