Let's get grilling

1 For the skewers, combine the lemon juice and zest, olive oil, oregano, garlic and plenty of salt and pepper. Add the cubed chicken and toss to coat evenly. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to one hour.
2 Divide chicken pieces into 8 portions and thread onto the skewers.
3 While the chicken is marinating, make the salad. In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, lemon juice, olive oil and oregano. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.
4 Build a charcoal fire for direct grilling using Kingsford® Original Charcoal and preheat to 400°F. Lightly oil the grates to prevent sticking.
5 Place the chicken skewers on the grill and cook for 10–12 minutes, turning often, until the chicken is cooked through. For your safety, please reference the USDA safe cooking temperatures.

Serve the skewers warm on top of the salad.
