    Chef #879769's Note:

    This recipe is from a Cook's Illustrated magazine a few years ago. This is my absolute favorite chicken recipe. The flavor is wonderful and delicious. This recipe is for kabobs, but I have also used the marinade for whole chicken breasts, which also turn out wonderful.

      A hidden gem. If you ever go out to a restaurant and wonder how they make the chicken kabobs so tender, then here is your answer: it's the yogurt. It keeps the meat juicy while adding a nice light creamy texture. The amount and combination of herbs is perfect as well. Thank you

      Awesome! We loved this! So simple but wonderful results. Chicken is very tender and perfectly seasoned. Served with whole wheat couscous for a simple summer meal the whole family enjoyed. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
