  • 2 1/2 - 3 lbs chicken breasts cut into 1 ½ inch cubes
  • 8 oz 2% Greek Yogurt Plain Yogurt Works as well. I have forund the 2% to be better than 0%.
  • 3 medium garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin


  • Cut the chicken into 1 ½ inch cubes
  • Thread the chicken onto the skewers (about 5 – 6 pieces per skewer)
  • Measure the remaining ingredients into a long shallow dish (I used a 9x13 baking disand whisk together
  • Roll/shake the chicken around in the marinade to completely cover the chicken (this is messy)
  • Cover and let marinade for at least an hour but 4 + hours is ideal (I put together in the morning and then grilled that evening)
  • Prepare the grill at a medium to high heat
  • Grill the chicken for 5-7 minutes and then flip and grill the other side for 5 minutes


Note 1:  These can be marinated before you freeze them if you meal plan and prep or buy in bulk.  
Note 2: I prefer to have as much prep work done before hand so I have minimal tasks to do when my children are hangry ☺ But you can also prep the chicken this way:
Alternative Prep Instructions:
1. Measure all of the ingredients and mix them in a plastic bag
2. Add the chicken pieces to the plastic bag and let them marinate off of the skewers (4+ hours)
3. Thread the chicken onto the skewers right before you are ready to grill
Note 3: Feel free to adjust the spices to your liking, you may want to add a little cayenne pepper - I keep it lighter for my children
Note 4: The yield depends on how much your family eats. This was enough for dinner one night and some leftovers a 2nd night for us. There was some extra coating and could probably do a little over 2lbs.
