With a whisk, thoroughly combine the ingredients.
Add the chicken tenders to the mixture.
With a heavy spoon, thoroughly coat the chicken with the marinade.
Using two gallon-sized zip closure plastic bags, divide half of the the chicken and yogurt mixture and place into each bag. Zip closed and mix around one more time.
Lay flat and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight.
Soak the wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.
Remove the chicken from the bags and discard the marinade left in the bags.
Heat grill to 375℉.
While grill is heating up, thread marinated strips of chicken onto the skewers.
Grill chicken for a total of 20 minutes, 10 minutes per side.
For an added sauce on the side, make a little extra of the marinade. It would be a delicious accompaniment in a little dish on the side.
