Yogurt-Marinated Chicken Kebabs

Grilled Yogurt-Marinated Chicken Kebabs, a fantastic summer recipe that is light, healthy, and delicious. Serve it with rice and a nice crunchy salad, and you have a great lunch or dinner. It's so easy to make, but it's big on flavours. A must-try recipe for the BBQ season. The chicken kebabs are juicy and tender on the inside, and have a nice grilling colour on the outside. The yogurt keeps the chicken flavoured and absolutely yummy.
