Directions
Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Make the sauce: In a small bowl, combine together the yogurt, vinegar, garlic, black pepper, mustard, horseradish, honey and 1/4 tsp of the salt. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving.

Step 3

Make the kebabs: In a large bowl, whisk together the rosemary, oil, garlic, the remaining 1/4 tsp salt, orange zest, chile powder and black pepper. Add chicken, onion, zucchini, yellow squash and bell pepper. Toss to coat chicken and vegetables. Thread chicken and vegetables alternately onto 4 (12-inch) metal or wooden skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak them in warm water for 30 minutes before use). Discard the marinade.

Step 4

Grill the kebabs, covered with grill lid, for 12 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through, turning occasionally. Let the kebabs stand for 5 minutes. Serve with the dipping sauce.
