For the Chicken Skewers
- 1 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
- Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
- In a bowl, combine the lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, chopped fresh herbs, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Mix well to create the lemon herb marinade.
- Place the chicken cubes in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them. Toss the chicken to ensure it is well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours for maximum flavor infusion.

- Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
- Thread the marinated chicken cubes onto the soaked wooden skewers, dividing them evenly among the skewers.
- Place the chicken skewers on the preheated grill and cook for approximately 6-8 minutes per side, or until the chicken is cooked through and has nice grill marks.
- Once cooked, remove the skewers from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes.
- Serve the Lemon Herb BBQ Chicken Skewers hot, accompanied by the creamy yogurt sauce for dipping.
- If using metal skewers, no need to soak them in water.
- Feel free to customize the herbs used in the marinade and yogurt sauce based on your preference.
- These skewers can be cooked on an indoor grill pan or under the broiler if an outdoor grill is not available.
