Dark-meat chicken is the best for grilling: Unlike lean breasts, thighs have plenty of fat, so they won’t dry out.


Garlic Sauce

  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons plain yogurt


  • 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 2” pieces
  • ½ cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Vegetable oil (for grilling)
  • Warm pita bread, labneh (Lebanese strained yogurt), chopped tomatoes, and fresh mint leaves (for serving)

Special equipment

  • Sixteen 8” bamboo or metal skewers

Recipe Preparation

Garlic Sauce

  • Place garlic in a mortar; season with salt and pound to a very fine paste. (Alternatively, place garlic on a cutting board, season with salt, and mash with the side of a chef’s knife.) Transfer garlic paste to a small bowl and gradually whisk in oil.

  • Very gradually whisk yogurt into garlic mixture until emulsified. (Add too fast and sauce will break. If it does break, gradually whisk in 1 tsp. water just before serving.)

  • DO AHEAD: Garlic sauce can be made 6 hours ahead. Cover and chill.


  • Toss chicken, garlic, parsley, cumin, paprika, and red pepper flakes in a medium bowl; season with salt. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.

  • Prepare grill for medium-high heat and oil grate. Thread chicken onto skewers. Grill, turning occasionally, until cooked through, 8–12 minutes. Serve with garlic sauce, pita bread, labneh, tomatoes, and mint.

  • DO AHEAD: Chicken can be marinated 12 hours ahead. Keep chilled.

Reviews SectionThis was excellent. I added a splash of sesame oil and pan fried instead of using skewers and grilling. Do no skip the garlic sauce. The whole dish was easy and delicious.sojogalSalt Lake City04/27/20Loved these! Made everything exactly as written EXCEPT, I didn't cut the chicken up. We just grilled the thighs whole... made it easier on a weeknight! Beware, the garlic sauce is very garlicky! No vampires around here...Delicious! Made with tatziki and couscous salad! Was a winner!
