These Pesto Chicken Kabobs are just the right amount of tasty and simple!  Chicken breast is marinated in a Mixed Herb Pesto, grilled to perfection, and can be enjoyed with your favorites side dishes.  Just be sure to save some leftovers for lunch the next day!

Because my herb garden has gone completely crazy, I’ve been making and eating this Mixed Herb Pesto on just about everything lately.  It’s a great addition to sandwiches, wraps, and pizza, and is the perfect thing to jazz up boring old chicken.  I’ve mentioned my love of kabobs before (aka these Greek Lemon Chicken Skewers and Rosemary Dijon Turkey Kabobs) and this recipe is definitely going on the list of favorites. 

Although summer is winding down, our grill keeps going until the snow flies.  I’ll be making these again soon and you should too!

    I made these tonight for dinner and they were so good! I served them over a bed of rice and mixed some additional pesto sauce in with the rice and every bite was so fantastic! My kids loved this one, too! Such a simple meal and everyone loved it! Thanks for posting this one!
