I'm making this for dinner tonight. One of my favorite spring/summer recipes. It's so good.
And so easy a caveman can do it.
My comments and tweaks in parentheses

Yogurt-Basil Chicken Kabobs
1 cup plain yogurt (Greek yogurt is even better)
1 cup packed fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup chopped red onion (don't substitute a red one. it affects the flavor really weirdly. If red onions are too strong for you, substitute scallions or chives)
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
salt and pepper
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs (I use breasts), trimmed of excess fat and cut into 1 1/2 in. pieces
1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1 inch squares (if you can't catch yellow ones on sale, green ones are fine. Why are yellow and red peppers so expensive anyway?)
1 large zuchini, quartered lengthwise and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 pint large cherry tomatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
( I also use mushrooms. I effing love grilled mushrooms)

1. pulse yogurt, basil, and onion in a food processor several times. Transfer mixture to a non metal bowl. Add curry powder and 1/4 tsp salt. Reserve 1/2 cup mixture for dipping
2. Add cicken to bowl with remaining yogurt mixture, toss to coat. Refrigrate, covered, for 45 minutes to 6 hours. Meanwhile soak 20 bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes.
3. Preheat grill to medium. Toss vegetables in oil in a bowl. Thread chicken and veggies onto skewers.
4. grill, turning occasionally, until chicken is cooked through. Serve with reserved yogurt mixture for dipping.

This makes a LOT. So cut every thing in half if you aren't serving at least 3 people. We always have leftovers, which are great reheated over rice.
