Instructions Checklist
  • Combine yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, oregano (and/or marjoram), garlic, 1 tablespoon oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Transfer 1/2 cup of the mixture to a small bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.

  • Add chicken to the remaining yogurt mixture and stir to coat. Let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes or refrigerate up to 1 day.

  • Preheat grill to high.

  • Toss bell pepper and onion in a large bowl with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Thread the marinated chicken, bell pepper and onion pieces alternately onto eight 8- to 10-inch skewers. (Discard marinade.)

  • Reduce grill heat to medium. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the skewers, turning once, until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender-crisp, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Serve with the reserved yogurt sauce for dipping.

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Marinate chicken (Step 2) for up to 1 day in the refrigerator; refrigerate dipping sauce separately.

Equipment: Eight 8- to 10-inch skewers

An oiled grill rack keeps your food from sticking. Once your grill is good and hot, dip a folded paper towel in a little oil, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack.
