Tomato Basil Chicken Skewers

Servings 6 servings


  • 2 tablespoons minced onion
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast meat cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed
  • olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • bamboo skewers or metal


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate chicken for 1 hour (see recipe). If using bamboo skewers, presoak them in water for 30 minutes, to prevent burning on the grill.
  • Place chicken cubes in a shallow bowl. In a small bowl, combine next 5 ingredients (garlic through basil).
  • Rub mixture into chicken then cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Preheat grill to MEDIUM and lightly oil grill grate.
  • Thread marinated chicken cubes onto skewers and grill over indirect heat for 15 to 20 minutes, turning occasionally, until juices run clear. Watch carefully to prevent burning! Enjoy!!!
