  • ¼ cup low-fat or nonfat plain Greek yogurt

  • 3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, plus lemon wedge for serving

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast half (6 to 8 ounces), cut into 1 ½-inch pieces

  • 1 cup baby arugula

  • ¾ cup fresh corn kernels (from 1 ear corn)

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil


  1. In a medium bowl, combine yogurt, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, and dill; season with salt and pepper. Add chicken and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour (or up to overnight).

  2. Heat broiler, with rack in top position. Thread marinated chicken onto 2 metal skewers and place on a wire rack set on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil chicken, turning occasionally, until cooked through and dark brown in spots, 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, toss together arugula, corn, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, and oil. Season with salt and pepper. Serve salad alongside kebabs with lemon wedge.
