Dipping sauce
  1. 1/3 cup honey mustard
  2. 2/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
Marinade
  1. 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  2. 1 teaspoon paprika
  3. 1 teaspoon onion powder
  4. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  5. 1/2-1 teaspoon chili powder
  6. 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  7. 1/2 teaspoon salt
Chicken
  1. 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, trimmed of visible fat
  2. 12 metal or wooden skewers
Instructions
  1. 1. For the dipping sauce, mix the honey mustard and sour cream in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until needed. This sauce can be made up to 2 days in advance.
  2. 2. In a small bowl, whisk together all marinade ingredients; set aside.
  3. 3. Cut each chicken breast lengthwise into 4 long, thin strips. You should end up with about 12 strips. Place the strips into a gallon-size zip-top plastic bag. Pour the marinade mixture over the chicken, and close the bag. Then flip the bag a few times to ensure that all pieces are coated with marinade, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  4. 4. When ready to cook, transfer the chicken to a colander to drain off excess marinade. With clean hands, skewer each piece of chicken, threading it onto the end of a skewer. Continue until all of the chicken pieces are skewered.
  5. 5. Preheat the grill or grill pan to medium heat. Cook for about 2 1/2 minutes on each side, testing chicken for doneness before serving (meat should be opaque). Transfer skewers to a clean platter.
  6. 6. Remove the chicken from the skewers, if desired. Serve chicken while hot with the dipping sauce alongside.
