  3. For the marinated veggies, cut the onion into large wedges, the tomatoes into wedges, and slice the cucumber.
  4. On the pre-heated grill, lightly grill the onion wedges for about 4-5 minutes each side.
  5. In a large bowl, combine the grilled onion wedges, cup veggies, and the rest of the veggie marinade ingredients. Toss together and set aside in the fridge to chill.
  6. Now grill the marinated chicken, about 10-12 minutes on each side, until fully cooked.
  7. Serve each chicken breasts with a side of the chilled yogurt sauce and marinated veggies.
