For the Marinated Chicken:

  • 4 chicken breasts or 8 chicken thighs cut up in chunks
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce or tamari sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ginger powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

For the Tzatziki:

  • 1/4 cup finely diced cucumbers
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt

Also needed:

  • Whole romaine lettuce leaves about 8-10
  • Sliced cucumbers about 30 slices


  • Combine soy sauce, ginger, olive oil, and pepper in a bowl. Toss with chicken, cover and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to marinate.
  • While chicken is marinating, immerse bamboo skewers in water to soak to lessen the chance of burning the skewers when on the grill.
  • Finely dice 1/4 cup cucumbers.
  • Combine diced cucumbers with garlic, dill, salt, pepper, and yogurt. Stir gently to combine. Place in fridge until time to serve.
  • Heat grill to medium heat.
  • Slide approximately 5-7 pieces of chicken onto each skewer and place on the grill. The olive oil in the marinade eliminates the need to oil grill.
  • Cook for 5 minutes each side, until chicken is cooked through.
  • Arrange romaine leaves on a plate, top with sliced cucumbers, chicken, and tzatziki. Finally, garnish with sesame seeds.
  • After serving, use a fork to remove skewer from the chicken.
