How To Make Chicken Caprese Skewers
These chicken caprese skewers are grilled and glazed with a savory pesto sauce for a richer dish. Serve a couple of these for your next BBQ party!
If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 1 hour. Preheat a grill over medium-high heat to about 425 degrees F.
Thread the chicken and tomatoes onto skewers, in 4 pieces of chicken and 3 tomatoes per skewer.
Brush both sides with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper.
Grill the chicken kebabs for 4 to 6 minutes per side until the chicken registers 165 degrees F in the center.
In a food processor, pulse the basil, parmesan, pine nuts, and garlic several times until minced.
Season with salt and pepper to taste, then with the food processor running slowly, pour in the olive oil.
Once the kebabs have cooked through, remove them from the grill, then thread one mozzarella ball onto each end of the skewer.
Spoon the pesto over the kebabs, then drizzle with balsamic glaze. Serve warm, and enjoy!
