In small bowl, combine olive oil, chili flakes, garlic, oregano, rosemary, and lemon zest. Whisk together marinade.
Cut chicken into 3/4-inch cubes. Alternate chicken and grapes and thread onto 12-inch skewer. Place skewers into a baking dish or a pan large enough to hold them. Pour marinade over skewers, coating each one. Marinate 4 to 24 hours. Remove skewers from marinade, and let excess oil drip off. Season with salt.
Grill on barbecue grill until chicken is cooked through, about 5 to 8 minutes on each side. Arrange on serving platter and drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice.
