    Lemon and Herb Chicken Skewers with Cucumber Yogurt Sauce

    Lemon and Herb Chicken Skewers
    1 lb chicken breast
    3 lemons
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 T olive oil
    3/4 tsp dried oregano
    1/2 tsp dried rosemary
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/8 tsp pepper
    Wooden skewers

    Soak wooden skewers in water while preparing food. Cut the chicken breasts into 3 strips each. In a small bowl, use the juice from a whole lemon, add garlic, oil, oregano, rosemary, salt and pepper and stir to create marinade. Pour into a large, zip-lock bag and add chicken; let marinade for 15-20 minutes. Slice remaining lemons into wedges for skewers. Put chicken on skewers and one lemon on the end of each skewer.
    Grill chicken for a few minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Serve with cucumber yogurt sauce. If desired, squeeze additional lemon juice over chicken.
