Chicken Kebabs for the Whole Family

I love kebabs. It's such an easy and healthy way to cook protein and veggies at the same time. You can grill these on a charcoal or gas grill, or inside on a grill pan. This recipe is full of protein, vitamins A, C and D, potassium, iron, and folate. You can puree this for little ones 8+ months, or cut into bite size pieces and serve as finger food for little ones 10+ months.

Here's what you need for 4 servings:
3 to 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 inch cubes
1 to 2 zucchini's chopped
1 large heirloom tomato chopped
1 red bell pepper chopped
cooking spray
3 to 4 bamboo skewers
4 small whole wheat flat breads or naan

Yogurt sauce: (I got this recipe from Williams-Sonoma and tweaked it a little)
1 cup low fat or fat free plain greek yogurt
2 green onions (scallions or chives)  finely chopped
1 clove garlic minced
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp lemon juice
pinch of salt

Season chicken with a little salt, pepper, and oregano. Put chicken, zucchini, peppers, and tomato on skewers. Spray kebabs with cooking spray and place on hot grill pan or outdoor grill. Grill for 8 to 10 minutes on both sides. While chicken is cooking mix all the ingredients for yogurt sauce together. Spoon one or two spoonfuls of yogurt sauce on to each flat bread. When chicken is cooked, slide the chicken and veggies off of the skewer and on to the flat bread. Serve and enjoy! Make sure to cut your little ones portion up into bite size pieces. If you are pureeing, place chicken, veggies, a little yogurt sauce and a little water into a blender or food processor.
