  • 8 bamboo skewers
  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 cup low fat plain yogurt
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint, plus one spring for garnish (optional)
