Italians love their chicken spiedini! It is so easy to make and so elegant. My grandmother was a Cunetto (Cunetto's House of Pasta, St. Louis, MO) so this recipe was in her blood! Here is a picture of my grandmother, with her sister Mary and her mother Rosa Lia Cunetto..........
Aren't little old Italian ladies cute?!!!

Here are the ingredients:

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/3 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 pound melted butter
1/2 cup lemon juice
Here are the ingredients for the marinade
Place the chicken, oil, wine and spices in a Ziploc bag. Marinate for 1 hour.
Mix Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs together. Roll the chicken in the bread crumb mixture.
Put the chicken on a skewer and broil for 10 minutes.
While the chicken in in the oven, melt the butter 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 oven.
