Grilled Chicken and Tomato Kebabs

These Grilled Chicken and Tomato Kebabs are not only healthy, they are really delicious and simple to make too! I love the basil pesto marinade which accompanies this kebab recipe. It packs a real flavor punch from the basil and garlic and it has a certain richness from the addition of grated Parmesan cheese.

Start by making the basil pesto marinade for the chicken. Marinate cubes of meat for at least one hour. Once the meat has marinated start assembling the kebabs. If you are using wooden skewers, make sure you soak them in water for at least 30 minutes. I usually use metal skewers to avoid this step! Thread tomatoes and chicken onto the skewers and grill them either on an outdoor or indoor grill.

To make the Grilled Chicken and Tomato Kebabs, you will need the following ingredients:
