Hint

Adapted from "What's Gabby Cooking"


Directions

Step 1. 

Soak wooden skewers in water for 20 minutes.  Whisk together the lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, plain yogurt, garlic, tomato paste, salt, oregano, paprika, pepper and allspice in a large bowl; add the chicken and toss to coat. Transfer the chicken mixture into a large plastic bag; refrigerate at least 4 hours.  Preheat an indoor or outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil grate. Thread the chicken onto metal or wooden skewers. Cook on the preheated grill until the chicken is golden and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes each side.  Serve the chicken skewers with the cilantro and mint sauce and pita wedges


Step 2.  Cilantro Mint Sauce

Combine the ingredients for the mint cilantro sauce in a blender and blend until smooth. Adjust salt and pepper as needed.
