Gather all the ingredients.
In a glass mixing bowl, add water, salt, chicken, lemon juice and lemon shell. Marinate for 8 hours. Note - it's recommended not to use metal bowls due to the interaction with lemon's acidity.
After marination, pat chicken dry with a paper towel and cut into 1" x 1" cubes. Note - you can BBQ the chicken whole and cut it into pieces afterwards if preferred.
Preheat grill to 350F.
Once the grill is up to temp, reduce heat to medium and place chicken pieces on the grill. Close lid and cook for 7-14 minutes or until internal temp reaches 165F while occasionally rotating the chicken.
Transfer chicken to a serving plate and serve with optional Yuzu
