Mediterranean Chicken Kebab

Harissa hummus makes a great dip for this juicy skewer.

"Savory olives and sweet sun-dried tomatoes are the perfect combo to accent these chicken skewers," says Katzie Guy-Hamilton, chef and director of food and beverage at Equinox, who suggests serving them over quinoa for an extra-hearty lunch.
