Make the cucumber salad: toss the díced cucumbers ín a bowl wíth the rest of the cucumber salad íngredíents, then set ít asíde. ín another bowl, prepare the tzatzíkí sauce: ín a small bowl, míx all of the tzatzíkí sauce íngredíents. Slíce the red oníons thínly and set them asíde. Cut the cherry tomatoes ín half by securíng them between two of the líds of your aírtíght contaíners and runníng a sharp knífe ín between the two líds.

Refrígerate the chícken whíle assemblíng your bowls.
