1. Chicken Skewers: Heat outdoor grill. Mix ingredients in a plastic food bag and seal. Marinate 15 minutes. Have ready 8 skewers.

2. Meanwhile, make salsa: Coat tomatoes with nonstick spray. Grill, turning, 5 minutes or until skins are charred. Remove to a bowl; mash until almost smooth. Stir in rest of ingredients.
