Helpful Hints

Make sure any marinade you use gets thoroughly cooked, because it contains juices (bacteria) from the raw chicken.

OMG!!!! This is sooo good, my whole family loved it, even my very picky 12 yr. old (this says it all!) Tender moist chicken on a skewer served over rice. Yum Yum Yum!

The combination of lemon and yogurt makes for a very tangy dish. I thought it was just okay, but my partner went for seconds.
