Middle Eastern Chicken Kebabs

Chicken thighs, marinated in a tangy blend of yogurt, lemon, garlic & spices, and grilled on skewers until golden brown.

Servings: 4-6

  1. 1 cup plain whole milk Greek yogurt
  2. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  3. 2 teaspoons paprika
  4. 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  5. 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  6. 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (reduce to 1/2 teaspoon if you don't like heat)
  7. Zest from one lemon
  8. 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, from one lemon
  9. 1-3/4 teaspoons salt
  10. 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  11. 5 garlic cloves, minced
  12. 2-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of any excess fat and cut into large bite-sized pieces
  13. 1 large red onion, cut into wedges
  14. Vegetable oil, for greasing the grill

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt, olive oil, paprika, cumin, cinnamon, red pepper flakes, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, pepper and garlic.
  2. Thread the chicken onto metal skewers, folding if the pieces are long and thin, alternating occasionally with the red onions. Be sure not to cram the skewers. (Note: You'll need between 6-8 skewers.) Place the kebabs on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Spoon or brush the marinade all over the meat, coating well. Cover and refrigerate at least eight hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. To grease the grill, lightly dip a wad of paper towels in vegetable oil and, using tongs, carefully rub over the grates several times until glossy and coated. Grill the chicken kebabs until golden brown and cooked through, turning skewers occasionally, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer the skewers to a platter and serve.
