Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into twenty-four 1-inch pieces
  • 1 zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut crosswise into sixteen 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 small red onion, quartered, layers separated
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta (2 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves

Cook's Note

To assemble kebabs, start and end with a chicken piece to prevent other ingredients from sliding off the skewers.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a resealable plastic bag, combine chicken, zucchini, onion, oil, oregano, and 2 tablespoons vinegar; season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and teaspoon pepper. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes (or refrigerate up to overnight).

  2. Step 2

    Heat grill or grill pan to medium. Soak eight 6-inch wooden skewers in water for 15 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Onto each skewer, alternately thread 3 pieces of chicken with 2 of zucchini and 2 of onion (see below). Grill skewers, turning occasionally, until chicken is cooked through, 12 to 14 minutes.

  4. Step 4

    Meanwhile, make dipping sauce: In a food processor, blend feta, yogurt, mint, and remaining tablespoon vinegar until smooth. Serve kebabs with dipping sauce.

    Delicious. I added a clove of crushed garlic to the sauce for extra tang.
