Pesto Chicken Skewers
I didn't realize how easy it was to make skewers like this in the oven. They turn out great, but for a little extra char feel free to use the grill! The pesto and tomatoes are a tasty combo.
What you will need
2 chicken breast
3 oz pesto
1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes
8oz bell pepper blend, optional
5.5oz Rice pilaf box
1 tbsp olive oil
