Garlic Chicken Kabobs

 Garlic Chicken Kabobs
Tender and moist, these grilled kabobs from Sheri Jean Waked are extra special when served with her garlic dipping sauce. "This is a lighter version of a dish my Lebanese mother-in-law taught me to make," she writes from Loveland, Ohio. "I reduced the amount of oil and substituted yogurt for mayonnaise."
