Lemon Herb Marinated Chicken Skewers

Lemon Herb Marinade for The Best Chicken KabobsNothing says summer more than the smell of food cooking on the grill.  I love grilling because the food has a special flavor and cooking outside has the added bonus of keeping the house cooler.  The secret of keeping the chicken moist is to marinate it before grilling.  Here’s a great recipe for  light and delicious chicken skewers – paired with veggie kabobs, it’s a quick and easy end-of-summer meal!

Remember to always marinate raw chicken seperately from other foods for best food safety practices

For the marinade add a handful of chopped rosemary, a handful of chopped basil, and 1 chopped shallot to 1 cup plain yogurt.Lemon Herb Marinade for Chicken Kabobs
