Greek Skewers with Tzatziki Sauce

Fun fact about me: I am Greek! I dug into my heritage a little and created some amazing GREEK SKEWERS. The tzatziki sauce on top really pulls the whole dish together and is so great. I put some veggies on the skewer too since they’re zero points.

An easy way to skewer your chicken is to soak them in water so the food goes on easily and the stick does not splinter.
