These chicken and veggie kabobs are paleo, gluten-free, keto and low-carb. They take a bit of prep but are quick to cook and leave next to no mess because you’re just grilling them! Such a perfect recipe for summertime.

These are the skewers I made for Father’s Day. I used herbs from my garden and they came out SO well. I’ve actually never cooked chicken and veggies together, but it worked out perfectly.

These skewers were SO super simple and my husband loved them. I served them with my fancy caprese salad and some rice based spaghetti.

They are the perfect summer grilling recipe! It’s a healthy dinner and the leftovers are perfect for lunch the next day.

    I bet the chicken is so moist and juicy and that pesto marinade sounds AMAZING! Just like a mini-vacay somewhere Mediterranean.
