You’ll be delighted at how much flavor you get from a simple combination of balsamic vinegar, olive oil, dried oregano, and salt and pepper. Cubed chicken breast marinates in the mixture, and then it’s brushed over the kebabs for more flavor. Since the marinade will have contained raw chicken, you need to be sure that you brush it on toward the beginning of grilling so that it has time to cook. The thick cucumber-yogurt sauce adds a light, fresh finish to the kebabs.
