Mealtime Monday: Pesto Chicken & Shrimp Skewers

Posted on

Welcome back to Mealtime Monday.  Almost two months in and I haven’t missed one yet!  This time I am sharing a delicious little creation inspired by SkinnyTaste.  Gina has a recipe for pesto shrimp kabobs that is super simple, so I decided to do a twist on it adding chicken, veggies and my homemade pesto.  Pair with some pilaf rice, YUM!
