    • Middle Eastern Chicken Kabobs

      Plan ahead: You'll need to marinate the chicken for at least one hour, but it's worth the wait. The spicy yogurt mixture makes the recipe tender and full of flavors. We highlight the basics of this recipe in the next three slides.

    • Step 1: Getting Ready to Marinade

      For the first step in preparing Middle Eastern Chicken Kabobs, place the bag with the chicken in a bowl in case the bag leaks. The next slide shows how to add this recipe's yogurt marinade.

    • Step 2: Adding the Yogurt Marinade

      After preparing the bag in Step 1, add the yogurt marinade to the bag with the chicken. Seal the bag; turn it to coat the chicken. The next slide shows how to assemble the kabobs.

    • Step 3: Threading the Chicken

      After marinating the chicken, alternately thread chicken, pepper, and squash on skewers, leaving space between for even cooking.

    • Red Lentil Rice

      This easy recipe provides a tasty introduction to garam masala -- a mixture of spices used in Indian cooking. When used in recipes, the seasoning adds appealing warmth without an overwhelming, fiery heat. The next slide shows a handy tip for snipping the fresh mint required for this recipe.

    • Tip: Snipping Fresh Herbs

      Use kitchen scissors to snip fresh herbs for dishes such as Red Lentil Rice. Simply put the herbs in a glass measuring cup or small bowl and snip away. If you don't have kitchen scissors, pile the herbs on a cutting board and chop them by rocking a chef's knife back and forth over them.

    • Ginger Chicken Stir-Fry

      Flash frying is the key to great stir-fry because it helps vegetables stay flavorful and crisp-tender. Also, try frying in peanut oil; it can reach higher temperatures than other oils before it starts to smoke. The next two slides show how to prepare the zucchini used in this deliciously Eastern specialty.

    • Step 1: Preparing Zucchini

      To prepare zucchini for a recipe like Ginger Chicken Stir-Fry, rinse the vegetable thoroughly under cool tap water. There's no need to peel summer squash such as zucchini and yellow squash. Using a chef's knife, cut a slice off the stem end (along with the stem) and blossom end. For larger summer squash, cut the squash in half lengthwise through the center. The next slide details the best technique for slicing zucchini.

      Step 2: Slicing Zucchini

      To slice zucchini for a recipe like Ginger Chicken Stir-Fry, place halved squash, flat side down, on a cutting surface and make crosswise slices that are about 1/4 inch thick. Or, for smaller squash, don't halve; just cut across into rounds.
