Then you place the chicken cubes in a plastic bag with the mixture over it and place in the refrigerator. While the chicken is marinating you season the veggies in a bowl. Once the chicken is ready you thread the pepper, onion, zucchini, and chicken on the skewer and place on the grill. You cook these skewers for about 8-10 minutes and rotate them about halfway through and serve with the Tzatziki sauce.

The Tzatziki sauce is a perfect sauce to put with these skewers. To make this sauce you grated cucumber in a colander, and you add salt and Marukan Genuine Brewed Rice Vinegar and let it rest to release its liquids for 15 minutes. In a mixing bowl you combine the yogurt, garlic clove, Marukan Genuine Brewed Rice Vinegar, dill, and olive oil and mix together.
