Yogurt Marinated Chicken Skewers

INGREDIENTS:

2 teaspoons crushed red pepper

2 teaspoons sweet paprika

1 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 tablespoons tomato paste

2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

6 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

1 lemon, juiced

1 lemon, cut into wedges/sliced for serving

2 1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken (thighs and/or breasts), cut into 1 1/4-inch cubes
INSTRUCTIONS: 

Combine the crushed red pepper and paprika in large bowl and stir in 2 tablespoons of hot water and let stand for 5 minutes. Add the yogurt, olive oil, red wine vinegar, tomato paste, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1 teaspoon black pepper to spice mixture in bowl; whisk to combine. Stir in garlic and lemon juice, then chicken. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.

Prepare grill over medium-high heat. Thread chicken pieces on skewers, dividing equally. Discard marinade in bowl. Sprinkle each skewer with salt and pepper.

Grill chicken until golden brown and cooked through, turning skewers occasionally, 10 to 12 minutes total. Transfer skewers to platter.
