Preparing the chicken caprese skewers

  1. For each kind of pesto, blend all the ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Add salt to your taste and pour the pesto in small into a small bowl
  2. Chicken is rich in proteins. Use one chicken breast and chop it up in small chunks of one square inch. Heat up the chicken chunks in the oven or on a frying pan. No need to use seasoning as you would like to have the taste of chicken to be dominant. But you can use your favorite herbs and spices if you wish.
  3. Skewer a cherry tomato followed by a basil leaf, a small mozzarella ball and a chicken chunk.
  4. Sprinkle some chilli flakes on the mozzarella.
  5. Serve with the pestos. Spread the pesto on your skewer and enjoy!
  6. If you get any pesto over you should use it to your past
