While waiting for the chicken marinade, get all the ingredients for tzatziki sauce and mix them all in a large bowl. For the cucumber, do not forget to squeeze out the water then combine it with the sauce.

2The greek salad is also easy to make, just mix all of the ingredients and stir well. Add seasoning, like salt and pepper to make it tastier. After this, for cooking the chicken, you can use grill or skillet.
