Then, grill your chicken over medium high heat for 7-10 minutes on each side or until it reaches an internal temperature of 160° F.

For the Tzatziki sauce, peel and slice the cucumber in half lengthwise and remove the seeds with a spoon and grate the cucumber using a box grater. Next, wrap the cucumber pieces in a paper towel and squeeze to remove all water. Finally, combine the cucumber, lemon juice, Greek yogurt, minced garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl and mix well.

When creating the fresh salsa, combine the diced tomatoes, cucumber, onion, parsley, salt, and pepper and mix everything together. Enjoy!
