  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1" cubes and seasoned with salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup pesto sauce plus more for serving
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 2 medium zucchini cut into 1/2" thick rounds
  • 18 cherry tomatoes


  • Season the chicken generously with salt and pepper and place in a large zip top bag or bowl. Combine the pesto sauce with the lemon juice and pour over the chicken, tossing until evenly coated. Marinate a minimum of 2 hours or overnight.
  • Preheat the grill to medium high. Once preheated, brush the grates with oil.
  • Skewer the chicken, zucchini, and cherry tomatoes on large metal or wooden skewers (I used metal). Grill for 15 minutes, turning every 5 minutes. Drizzle with extra pesto sauce, serve, and enjoy!


  • You can also use your favorite store bought pesto as a time saver! 
  • I marinated the chicken for 2 hours and it was very flavorful, but the longer you marinate it, the better it will be.
  • This meal is great served with orzo pasta!
