Mix all of the marinade ingredients in a bowl until well combined. Add the chicken cubes, mix to well to coat, cover and let marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours, or overnight.
When ready to grill, take the chicken out of the fridge 30 minutes in advance. Wipe off excess marinade, put 4 chicken cubes on each skewer, and season with salt and pepper.
Pre-heat the grill to medium-high (400-450 degrees) and make sure grates are wiped clean to avoid having the chicken stick to the grill.
Cook chicken 5-6 minutes per side, until meat is firm and just cooked through. Place skewers on a plate, cover loosely with foil, and set aside.
While chicken is resting, lightly grill the bread on each side until warmed through.
In a separate bowl, mix the cucumber, tomato and scallions, and season with salt and pepper.
For the assembly, place one piece of bread on a plate, sprinkle with half a cup of chopped salad, top with one chicken skewer and serve with lemon wedge.
