How to Make It

  1. Place first 11 ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth, scraping sides once. Combine yogurt mixture and chicken in a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.

  2. Preheat broiler.

  3. Remove chicken from bag, discarding marinade. Thread chicken strips onto 24 (6-inch) skewers. Place skewers on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 5 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Arrange skewers on a serving platter, and garnish with lemon wedges and cilantro sprigs, if desired.
