How do I make it ?
Heat grill pan to medium heat.
Process onion in food processor until finely chopped. Add chicken, dry seasonings, half the cheese and 1/4 cup mint; process just until blended.
Divide chicken mixture into 8 portions; shape each into 6-inch log on each of 8 wooden skewers, firmly pressing chicken mixture into skewers to secure.

Chop remaining mint. Place 1/4 cup mint in medium bowl. Add tomatoes, dressing, 1/2 cup cucumbers and couscous; mix lightly. Spoon onto platter; top with remaining cheese and chicken skewers.
Mix remaining chopped mint with sour cream and remaining cucumbers. Serve with chicken skewers and couscous mixture.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Soak Wooden Skewers Before Using for Grilled Kabobs
If using wooden skewers, soak skewers in water for 30 min. before using to assemble kabobs to prevent the skewers from burning as the kabobs cook.
Garnish with additional chopped fresh mint before serving.
If the uncooked chicken logs are too soft to firmly stick to the skewers, refrigerate them 30 min. before cooking as directed.
