Ingredients at Firehouse Pantry

-Strain 1 cup yogurt through a cheesecloth placed in a sieve for 3-4 hours.
-Stir together strained yogurt, pressed garlic, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper; refrigerate until needed.
-Thread chicken, mushrooms, onions, and green peppers onto skewers; place in a non-metal dish.
-In a small bowl, mix together lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, coriander, ginger, chili powder, 1 tsp. salt, curry powder, and 1/2 tsp. pepper.
-Pour over chicken and turn skewers to coat chicken completely with marinade.
-Cover and refrigerate overnight, or at least 6 hours.
-Shake excess marinade from chicken and grill 8-10 minutes, basting with marinade and turning often.
Cleaning Mushrooms
Mushrooms soak up water like a sponge, then release it later while cooking, which can change the consistency of recipes. "Dry clean" mushrooms with a mushroom brush. You can find one with soft bristles at most kitchen stores. Lightly moisten the brush (or a rag) with water, and gently wipe the mushrooms.
-Remove meat and vegetables from skewers and serve in pita bread with garlic sauce.

Notes: This low-fat Turkish meal is rarely served the way it should be in the U.S. Try this version for a more authentic meal. Perfect for anyone on a low-carb diet such as Atkins.

Make It A Meal: Serve with Rice Pilaf
