These chicken kabobs are delicious and really easy to put together. You can make these on your grill outside, inside your oven, or on a griddle. All result in a wonderfully aromatic and tender meal. I like to serve it with a lemon tahini sauce and thick Persian flatbread. I've added my lemon tahini sauce recipe here with the kabobs.
You will need to soak bamboo skewers in warm water for a bit before threading them, or just use metal skewers.

These kabobs are really nice served over your favorite rice cooked in chicken broth and then very lightly flavored with a bit of lemon juice.
I sometimes grill my veggies on skewers separate from the meat because a few varieties don't cook in the same amount of time, so I make an extra batch of marinade for them.
Grilled chicken kabobs with a nutty dipping sauce makes a wonderful main dish
Drain the pineapple, reserving juice; set pineapple aside. In a bowl, combine the Worcestershire sauce and reserved juice. Cut each piece of chicken into four strips. Pour 1 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In medium bowl, combine chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce. Thread each chicken tender onto skewer, leaving 1 inch at each end.

I am looking for a recipe for grilled chicken kabob marinated in plain yogurt. I had this chicken kabob at a restaurant, it was unbelievable. The waitress said that it was marinated in plain yogurt, but I figure there has to be something more to it. Does anyone have a recipe using plain yogurt for marinating?

This might work....
1/2 c yogurt (I prefer Greek, and fat free, but any plain should do)
3 cloves minced garlic (again, I used more, but I love garlic)
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp canola oil
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp chili powder
1 tbsp fresh ginger
1/2 tsp salt
The recipe called for 4-6 boneless chicken breasts, but I used boneless, skinless thighs, and it was fantastic.
Grill over indirect medium heat for about 20 mins until done. Could be done inside on a grill pan, but be sure not to exceed a medium flame.
