This is a great way to prepare chicken, it tastes great and it's good for you. A good alternative to typical barbecue food.

Made this recipe for dinner last night and it was fabulous. I did make a couple small changes as an extra tablespoon of yogurt and mint and I also used 2 shallots and 2 cloves of garlic. Marinated the chicken for around 6 hours and then added whole baby bella mushrooms and sliced green pepper before I put it on the skewers. I made sure the vegetables were covered with the marinade as well. Chicken was tender and delicious and we enjoyed this very much and will be making it again.
