Yogurt-Marinated Chicken Skewers
12 oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast, cut into 1½-inch cubes
¼ cup plain fat-free yogurt
Seasonings: garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper
1. Place chicken in a medium bowl, and season with ⅛ tsp. of each seasoning. Top with yogurt, and stir to coat.
2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
3. Thread chicken onto skewers, packing the pieces together tightly.
4. Spray a grill or grill pan lightly with nonstick spray, and bring it to medium-high heat. Grill until chicken is cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes, carefully flipping about halfway through cook time.
