  • Light a grill. In a medium bowl, whisk the yogurt with the mayonnaise, honey, lime juice and mint and season with salt.

  • Thread the chicken onto 10 skewers, leaving 1/4 inch between the cubes. Grill over moderately high heat, turning frequently, until lightly charred and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Serve the kebabs with the minty yogurt sauce on the side.

Notes

One serving 228 cal, 8 gm carb, 12 gm fat, 2.6 gm sat fat, 29 gm protein, less than 1 gm fiber.

Suggested Pairing

Off-dry Riesling is a classic pairing for Thai curries (or curried kebabs like these); the light sweetness cools the curry's fire, and the vibrant fruit can compete with the spiciness. Some of the country's best Rieslings come from Washington state.
