- 2 chicken breasts cut into cubes
- 1 red onion cut in quarters
- 1 pepper bell, cut into squares
- 2 teaspoon Sweet Paprika
- 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon Smoked Paprika Spanish, hot
- 1/4 teaspoon cardamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 cloves garlic chopped
- 1 lemon juiced
- 1/2 cup olive oil extra virgin
Garlic Yogurt Sauce
- 1 cup yogurt natural
- 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon dill chopped

- 1 tablespoon olive oil extra virgin
- Salt & Pepper to taste
Add all the marinade ingredients to the small bowl and mix well together;
In a large bowl add chicken, peppers and onions;
Pour the marinade over the chicken and veggies, place in refrigerator for at least half hour;
If using wooden skewers, soak them for at least half hour;
After marinating assemble skewers with onions, chicken, peppers order until all ingredients are used.;
Cook the skewers on medium hot grill for about 15 minutes, turning often, until chicken is cooked through with the internal temperature at 165F;
In a separate bowl add all the Garlic Yogurt Sauce ingredients and mix well;
Serve the skewers with garlic yogurt sauce.
I provided information that this recipe is for 3 serving as I got 3 large skewers from two chicken breasts. You can spread them out more with more onions and peppers and make smaller skewers to have 4 serving. You can also multiply this recipe to create more skewers.
For the Garlic Yogurt sauce I used natural yogurt as it is more saucy. If you have Greek Yogurt you may need to add a little bit of water to loosen it up.
