Donâ??t skimp on the marinating time; any less than 3 hours and the chicken wonâ??t be as flavorful or tender. Conversely, marinating for more than 6 hours will make the chicken mushy. Serve with Yogurt-Herb Dipping Sauce

Recipe Ingredients for Grilled Chicken Kebabs

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic , minced (about 4 teaspoons)
2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast fillets cut into 1-inch cubes (about 4 fillets)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 red bell peppers , cut into 1-inch pieces
1 large red onion

Recipe Directions for Grilled Chicken Kebabs

  1. Prepare onions by trimming the ends and cut the onion into quarters. Peel away the first 3 (outer) ­layers and discard the inner core. Working with the outer layers only, cut each quarter into 3 even strips. Cut each strip crosswise into 3 pieces.

  2. Whisk yogurt, 1/4 cup oil, 1 tablespoon garlic, thyme, oregano, salt, pepper, and cayenne in large bowl. Stir in chicken. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 3 to 6 hours. Whisk remaining 1/4 cup oil, remaining teaspoon garlic, basil, and lemon juice in small bowl. Cover and refrigerate while chicken is marinating.

  3. Remove chicken from yogurt marinade; discard marinade. Thread each skewer with 2 pieces pepper, 1 piece onion, 2 pieces chicken, and 1 piece onion. Repeat twice more, ending with 2 additional pieces of pepper. Grill over high heat until vegetables and chicken are charred around edges on all four sides and chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to serving platter and brush kebabs all over with lemon dressing. Serve.
