The Execution

Measure out and prepare all the ingredients.
In a bowl, mix together the marinade ingredients: olive oil, lemon juice and zest, minced garlic, salt and pepper, and turmeric.

In a bowl, mix together the ingredients for the sauce: greek yogurt, chopped cucumbers, and minced garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Prepare the skewers by sliding on the chicken pieces and alternating with the onion wedges. Put all of the tomatoes on one skewer.
In a frying pan over medium heat, add the coconut oil, cauliflower rice, water, turmeric powder, and zaatar. Keep on medium heat for about 5-10 minutes until the water has evaporated.
Preheat the grill on medium heat. Grease the grill with a little bit of oil. Cook for 15-20 minutes, turning about every 5 minutes.
Serve the skewers with the turmeric cauliflower rice and garlic sauce. Serve with lemon slices and chopped parsley. Enjoy!
