Marinate the chicken pieces in the oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Meanwhile, make the tzatziki sauce: mix together the yogurt, cucumber, olive oil, lemon juice, herbs, and garlic. Taste and season with salt.
Make the cucumber salad: toss together the cucumber with vinegar and oil. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with red onions.
Skewer the chicken onto skewers and grill over medium high heat until cooked through, flipping as needed, 8-10 minutes.
Serve everything on a plate together: chicken souvlaki skewers, cucumber salad, and tzatziki.
Note: To cook the chicken in the oven, place a rack near the top of the oven and heat the broiler. Place the skewers on a baking sheet and broil for 8-10 minutes, turning once, until cooked through.
