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:

Steps to make Grilled Chicken and Tomato Kebabs


Make pesto marinade


Place 1 cup of basil leaves, 1 clove of garlic, ¼ cup of Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Gradually pour in 3 tablespoons of olive oil while pulsing.


Marinate the chicken


In a medium sized bowl, mix the chicken cubes with the pesto marinade and leave to marinate for at least one hour.


Assemble kebabs


Take 8 pairs of skewers and thread chicken and tomatoes onto them to make 8 kebabs total. Start and end each kebab with a chicken cube.


Prepare a grill

Heat a grill (outdoor or indoor) over medium heat until hot. Clean the grates before cooking and spray them lightly with oil.


Cook the kebabs


Place the kebabs on the hot grill. Cook for 3-4 minutes, then turn and continue to cook on the other side until the chicken is cooked through.

Devyn Fedigan

Loved the pesto so much I used it for sauce in my pasta too not just for this kebab really great flavor and with some squeezed lemon can be made zesty and delicious too.

Caylee Schupp

Added some sundried tomatoes instead of cherry ones actually a great combo in my opinion.

Austyn Wyeth

I tried the pickleback chicken wings first before this and personally think they were a lot juicier and flavorful.

Itzayana Xayasane

I added double the cheese since I'm a huge cheese lover haha.

Aubrianna Rodstrom

This is one of the greatest recipes I've ever had though not too filling on it's own, best with fries or some mashed potatoes.

Joyce Scalice

Made this yesterday for a cook out and everyone enjoyed it huge crowd pleaser.

Micaela Vonkaenel

In the end I had to bake and fry them because I don't own a grill of any sort sadly but they turned out great nonetheless easy and affordable meal so 5 stars from me for sure.

Zaria Vinette

Very good first time making it and it turned out good.

Antonella Renstrom

Perfect meal for my current diet I quite enjoyed it will be trying out the tuna and chicken salad next too.

Tamia Wead

Replaced chicken with pork and beef mixed way better than chicken for sure and soaks up the meat a lot more.

Joelle Zanis

It was alright but I think the chicken tasted kinda plain will try adding more spices next time.

Spencer Borrmann

Of course Jeff is the creator of this masterpiece! Tasted delicious just like everything else he makes.
