Spiedini is Italian for "little skewers" spiedini-chicken-ck picFor a backyard BBQ, prepare the salsa up to a day ahead and assemble the skewers earlier in the day. Coat with cooking spray and seasonings just before grilling. With a wonderfully complex and flavorful sauce like this, the chicken and zucchini need almost no seasoning―just salt, pepper and the grill's flame. The salsa's combination of tangy, briny, herbal and nutty flavors is perfect for chicken, pork, fish, or shrimp, especially if they're grilled. To save soaking the skewers for a half an hour, use metal ones instead of wood.

We use applejack, brandy made from apple cider, for depth of flavor in the pan sauce, but you can use 1/2 cup cider if you prefer.
