Categories: Appetizers / Chicken / Low-Carb


1/4  cup  Olive oil
1/4  cup  Red wine vinegar
2  teaspoons  Sugar
10  milliliters  Garlic, minced
1  teaspoon  Dijon mustard
1/2  teaspoon  Salt
1/2  teaspoon  Pepper
1/2  teaspoon  Dried tarragon
1/2  teaspoon  Dried oregano
1 1/2  pounds  Skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut 1x1" squares

1  cup  Mayonnaise
2  teaspoons  Dijon mustard
1  teaspoon  Garlic, minced
2  teaspoons  Dried tarragon
1/2  cup  Pineapple juice

3  large  Red bell peppers, 1/2x1" - 72 strips
2  large  Green bell peppers, 1/2x1" - 48 strips
1  large  Yellow onion, 1/2x1" - 96
24  8"  bamboo skewers, soaked in the fridge overnight

1. MARINADE-Add all ingredients except the chicken to a non-aluminum mixing bowl and mix thoroughly until the sugar and salt are completely dissolved. Pound the chicken breast between sheets of waxed paper until an even thickness of 3/16" overall. Cut the chicken breast meat into 1" squares and add to the marinade, covering completely. Allow to marinate for 2 hours, refrigerated. Remove from the marinade after 2 hours and drain.

2. SPIEDIES-Assemble in the following order: red bell pepper, onion, chicken (folded into "C" shape on the skewer), green bell pepper, onion, chicken, alternately, finishing with a red pepper strip after the 4th piece of chicken on each skewer. Spread the skewered items out on each skewer, so they will cook quickly. Place the Spiedies on a grill or a griddle and cook approximately 1 minute per side, turning 4 times. Adjust the timing according to your equipment's heat output. Serve immediately, 4 per quest, with dipping sauce, about 1/4 c per serving.

3. SAUCE-Mix all ingredients together just until blended. Chill 1 to 2 hours to blend flavors. Serve cold.
