Pesto Chicken Kabobs

Kabobs are one of my favourite things to grill on the barbecue. They’re simple to make, they taste delicious, and they look beautiful too. They’re the perfect thing to serve when company comes over on a summer evening.


Again with the so-so gesture! This time Cole said it was because he liked the chicken and peppers and mushrooms but hated the onion. Bennett liked it all.


Pesto Chicken Kabobs

3 chicken breasts, cubed
3 tbsp pesto
Freshly squeezed juice from 1 small lemon
1 half of a red onion, cut into squares
1 orange bell pepper, cut into squares
1 cup of mushrooms, sliced


  • Combine pesto and lemon juice. Place chicken cubes in a large ziploc bag and pour marinade over top. Marinate in refrigerator for at least an hour, or up to 24 hours.
  • Thread chicken and vegetables through skewers, then barbecue the kabobs over medium flame until chicken has cooked through, for about 15 minutes.

Makes approximately 6 kabobs.
