Chicken Skewers over Citrus Mashed Potatoes

Chicken Skewers:

6 ounces plain nonfat Greek yogurt

3 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoons Mexican oregano

Juice of 1 lime

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon salt

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks that fit the skewers

Citrus Mashed Potatoes:

2 pounds potatoes, scrubbed, peeled, and cut into chunks

1/4 cup unsalted butter

3/4 cup milk

1/2 tablespoon of your favorite citrus zest (I used half clementine and half lime)

1/2 teaspoon salt


Mix yogurt, garlic, oregano, lime juice, cumin, cayenne pepper, and salt in a large bowl. Mix in chicken and marinate 1 hour in the refrigerator. Soak skewers in water.

Meanwhile, make the mashed potatoes by placing potato chunks in a large pot of boiling water. Boil for 15 to 20 minutes or until fork tender. Drain well and return to pot. Mash potatoes and mix in butter, milk, citrus zest, and salt until smooth.

Heat oven broiler. Thread marinated chicken pieces onto skewers. Hang skewers across the top of a 13×9-inch pan and broil for 3 minutes per side or until cooked through and no longer pink in the center. Serve skewers over mashed potatoes. Makes 4 servings.
