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.
Grill 12 to 15 min. or until done (165°F) and evenly browned on all sides, turning occasionally. Meanwhile, cook couscous as directed on package, omitting salt.
Chop remaining mint. Place 1/4 cup mint in medium bowl. Add tomatoes, 1/2 cup cucumbers, dressing 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 couscous mixture.
Adding Professional Grill Marks
For a restaurant-style touch, add grill marks to your grilled meat, poultry or Fish/Seafood. Just place the food diagonally across the hot oiled grill grates, then proceed with grilling as usual. For a special touch, rotate the food a quarter turn halfway through the grilling time on each side to create criss-crossed grill marks.
Soak Wooden Skewers Before Using for GrilledKabobs
If using wooden skewers, soak skewers in water for 30 min. before using to assemble kabobs to prevent them from burning on the grill.
Watch your portion sizes by using a smaller plate, taking larger helpings of lower-calorie options, like veggies.
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 grilling as directed.
