1Place the yogurt, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, jalapeño, chopped herbs, and lime juice in a blender and blend until fairly smooth. Season lightly.
2Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and place in a large mixing bowl. Pour the spice mixture over and toss to coat evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours, or overnight if time permits.
3When ready to cook, preheat the grill to medium-high and thread the chicken pieces onto 8 presoaked bamboo skewers. Cook over a preheated grill for 8-10 minutes, turning frequently, until cooked through and lightly browned. Remove and serve immediately with lime halves to squeeze on top and a cucumber and red onion salad on the side.
Beverage pairing:Adelsheim Rosé, Oregon. This rosé from Oregon is made from Pinot Noir and has a gentle profile of strawberry and rhubarb, making it a great match with chicken that has been seasoned with green herbs and exotic spices. The wine is dry, but has a lovely, thirst-quenching succulence.
