Its simple food on a stick. Doesn’t get easier and more basic than that. These Yoghurt & Lemon marinated Chicken Skewers are simply delicious and so tender.

So just take out that grill, and put all you’re favorite food on it and enjoy a lovely grilled chicken skewer with all your favorite side dishes.
