Simple and tasty, chef Jimmy Bannos, Jr.’s sweet-smoky chicken is a great go-to dish any night of the week. Slideshow: Kebabs

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large bowl, whisk 1/2 cup of the olive oil with the paprika. Add the chicken and toss to coat; let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.

Step 2    

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the yogurt, lemon juice, cayenne, crushed red pepper and the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and black pepper and mix well.

Step 3    

Light a grill. Season the chicken with salt and black pepper and thread 3 pieces onto each of 8 skewers. Oil the grate and grill the chicken over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until golden brown and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Transfer the skewers to a serving platter and serve with the yogurt sauce and lemon wedges.

Make Ahead

The yogurt sauce can be refrigerated overnight.

Suggested Pairing

Juicy, light-bodied red.
