§  2 tablespoons paprika

4.    Alternately thread chicken, bell peppers, and onions onto skewers. Grill kebabs for 2 minutes on each side or until chicken is fully cooked. Serve with garlic yogurt and pita bread, if desired.


The yogurt marinade can cause kebabs to stick to the grill, so be sure to oil the grill well.
