Serves 4| Hands-On Time: | Total Time:
- 3/4 cup plain yogurt
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 large garlic clove, minced
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced into long strips
- 3 large, ripe mangoes, cut into large pieces
- Place 20 wooden skewers in water to soak. In a large, shallow dish, combine the yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, sugar, turmeric, salt, and pepper.
- Add the chicken to the yogurt mixture and toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 15 minutes (or overnight, if desired).

- Grill the mango until slightly charred and tender, about 2 minutes per side. Serve with the chicken.
