Ingredients

Instructions

  • Soak 6 wooden skewers in warm water for 30 minutes. Alternatively, use metal skewers (no soaking required).
  • In the bowl of a food processor, combine the roasted red bell peppers, slivered almonds, garlic, cilantro, Parmesan cheese, and lime juice. Pulse until combined.
  • While the food processor is running, slowly pour in the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Place the chicken in a medium bowl and toss with half of the pesto. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the grill to medium heat and lightly brush the grill with oil.
  • Thread the chicken onto the skewers, alternating with the green onion pieces.
  • Grill until the chicken is just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • Serve with the remaining pesto.
