These chicken kebabs get their vibrant color, bright flavor, and tender texture from a lemon-yogurt marinade infused with turmeric and garlic. If you have time, let the meat marinate up to 6 hours before grilling—trust us, the results will be worth it. Serve alongside a fresh fennel slaw for a refreshing summer meal.
