1 cup plain yogurt

In a large bowl, whish 1/2 cup of the olive oil with the paprika. Add the chicken and toss to coast; let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the yogurt, lemon juice, cayenne, crushed red pepper and the remaining 1 tbsp. of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.

Light a grill. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and thread 3 pieces onto each of the 8 skewers. Oil the grate and grill the chicken over moderate heat, turning occasionally until golden brown and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Transfer the skewers to a serving platter and serve with yogurt sauce and lemon wedges.

Yogurt sauce can be refrigerated overnight.
