Pintrest Success - Chicken Spiedini

I love finding new recipes on Pintrest and boy was this one a winner winner chicken dinner :)

The original recipe can be found here....

I am only cooking for my husband and myself and we are eatting healthy so I had to edit the recipe a little....

 2 chicken breasts cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/3 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup melted brummel (its like a yogurt butter?) Learn more about brummel here
1/2 cup lemon juice

Place the chicken, oil, wine and spices in a Ziploc bag.  Marinate for 1/2 and hour.. longer won't hurt if you have the time but who ever does right?

::drink wine::

Mix Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs together.  Roll the chicken in the bread crumb mixture.

 Put the chicken on a skewer and broil for 15 mins in a toaster oven.  Conventional oven works too but probably only for 10 mins.

While the chicken is in the toaster oven, melt the brummel and infuse the lemon juice.  Whisk briskly while slowly pouring the lemon juice in.  Pour the butter sauce over the chicken when you remove it from the toaster oven... also drink more wine.. :)

I paired my chicken with some quinoa and brown rice, a lettuce and tomato salad sans dressing and the left over Grand Traverse Semi Dry Riesling from cooking the chicken.

Verdict: Yum!  Hubby loved it to... we had plenty of left overs for tomorrow too!
