Ingredients

    1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
    1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley, plus extra for garnish
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch pieces
    2 small bell peppers (red and/or yellow), cored, seeded and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
    1 medium zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch-thick rounds

Directions

1. Stir together yogurt, parsley, cilantro, lemon juice, oil, garlic, paprika, cumin, salt, pepper and cayenne in a medium bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat well. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, preheat grill or broiler. Blanch bell peppers in boiling salted water for 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and refresh with cold water. Blanch zucchini for 1 minute. Drain and refresh with cold water.
3. Alternate chicken cubes, peppers and zucchini on skewers. Grill or broil the kebabs until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Garnish with a sprinkle of chopped parsley.

    This sounds like a great dish. FYI-the authentic way to make this is without yogurt. Moroccans do not use yogurt to marinate or cook with. I know I am one :). All the spices are ones I would use. Thanks for sharing - 9/18/08
