Chicken Yumsticks

2/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
2 tsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. hot sauce, plus extra to eat with the chicken
1 tsp. ground cumin
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 tsp. salt
8 chicken breast halves
Lemon wedges (optional)

Combine a few tablespoons of the yogurt with the brown sugar in a medium-sized bowl and mix until well blended. Add the remaining yogurt, hot sauce, cumin, garlic and salt.

Cut each chicken breast half into 6 to 8 equal pieces. Add to the yogurt mixture and stir until well combined. Thread the chicken onto eight skewers.

Place in a doubled gallon-size ziptop bag (to guard against leaks). Chill for 30 minutes to 2 hours. Pack in a cooler to bring to the park.

At the park, prepare the coals for grilling. Grill the kebobs over medium heat, rotating sides every few minutes, until cooked through, about 10 to 14 minutes total.

Serve with extra hot sauce and lemon wedges. Serves 6 to 8. Enjoy
