You can assemble these skewers one day in advance. Cover them with a damp paper towel; then cover them with plastic wrap. Keep refrigerated, and serve chilled. You can also make the onion sauce up to 24 hours in advance.
3/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
1/3 cup low-fat buttermilk
3 tablespoons chopped green onion tops
1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried dill
Place first 6 ingredients in a blender; process until smooth. Cover and chill.
Cut the cucumber lengthwise into 4 pieces; cut each piece crosswise into 6 (1/4-inch) slices. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add chicken; cook 4 minutes or until done. Drain well, and cool. Thread 1 chicken piece, 1 cucumber piece, and 1 mint leaf onto each of 24 (6-inch) skewers. Cover and chill. Serve with sauce; garnish with cucumber slices, if desired.
I have made these many times both for summer cook outs and for indoor parties and they are always gone in a flash. Can be made ahead of time and have a light crisp taste. My friends and family love this dish. Easy to prepare
