These ultra easy Lemon Pesto Chicken Kabobs are delicious and this recipe needs just five ingredients for a perfect low-carb summer dinner.


  •  4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  •  1/3 cup Newman’s Own Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing

  1. Trim visible fat and undesirable parts from chicken breasts and cut each breast into half lengthwise and then into 2 inch pieces.
  2. Mix together the vinaigrette dressing, basil pesto, lemon juice, and Spike Seasoning (affiliate link).
  3. Put the pieces of chicken into a Ziploc bag or plastic container with a tight-fitting lid, add the marinade mixture and turn over the bag or container until the chicken is coated with the marinade.
  4. Let chicken pieces marinate in the fridge for 8-10 hours (or longer is fine.)
  5. When you’re ready to cook, drain the chicken pieces into a colander placed in the sink and let chicken come to room temperature, discarding the marinade.
  6. Brush or spray the grill with high smoke-point oil or non-stick spray and preheat grill to medium.
  7. Thread chicken on to skewers. If you don’t have blade-type skewers (affiliate link) like I used or double skewers for kabobs (affiliate link), be sure to push the chicken tightly together so it won’t spin around on the skewers when you turn the kabobs.
  8. Grill chicken about 15 minutes, turning often, or until the chicken is lightly browned and firm, but not hard to the touch.
  9. Serve hot.



I used Newman’s Own Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing (affiliate link) for the marinade, which has only 1 carb per serving. This would be delicious with my Basil Pesto with Lemon if you prefer making your own pesto. I used my fresh-frozen lemon juice for the marinade.
