Skewer the chicken pieces and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow chicken to marinate.
Meanwhile turn your grill on medium-high. When grill is ready place the skewers on the grilling surface, leaving space between each skewer to ensure even cooking. Since the marinade already has oil in it, additional oil is not necessary. Depending on the size of your chicken pieces, cook each side of your skewers for approximately 3-4 minutes (total of 12-16 minutes). With each turn baste with additional marinade.
Check for doneness and remove skewers from the grill. Serve with pita, hummus, tzatziki, and fresh veggies.
