Lemon Yogurt Sauce: Line sieve with double thickness cheese cloth; set over bowl. Spoon in yogurt; cover and let drain in refrigerator for 1 hour to make about ½ cup (125 mL).
In bowl, whisk together yogurt, parsley, lemon rind and juice, salt and pepper.

In separate bowl, whisk together oil, sumac, parsley, garlic and cayenne pepper. Cut chicken crosswise into ¼-inch (5 mm) thick strips; add to oil mixture and toss to coat. Thread 1 strip onto each of about twenty 6- or 8-inch (15 or 20 cm) soaked wooden skewers. Place on greased foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Broil 6 inches (15 cm) from heat until no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt. Serve with lemon yogurt sauce.
