Grilled Chicken Kebabs
Grilled chicken kebabs are difficult to prepare. We wanted to find a method that was worth the effort-one that yielded tender, juicy chicken and well-cooked vegetables.
Why This Recipe Works
To keep the chicken in our Grilled Chicken Kebabs recipe from drying out, we marinated it in a blend of yogurt, olive oil, garlic, and herbs. The tangy, mildly acidic yogurt tenderized the chicken in our recipe and added valuable flavor—as long as the chicken only marinated for three to six hours. For the vegetable component of our kebabs recipe, we preferred firm vegetables like sweet red onion and red bell pepper. When cut into similarly sized pieces, they cooked evenly and became soft—but not mushy—by the time the chicken was cooked through.
