Chicken Pesto Kebobs

Written by COA Nutrition Team On September 21, 2018

Make these yummy Chicken Pesto Kebobs with your kids for dinner tonight! Small bite size pieces that kids love to assemble themselves.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 cup of tortellini pasta
  • 1/2 cup of pesto
  • 2 medium red bell peppers
  • 2 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cup sliced white mushrooms
  • 6 pieces of cooked Chicken Tenders
  • 15 wooden skewers

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cook tortellini according to package instructions. Drain water and return to the pan. Add pesto sauce and stir well.
  2. Chop bell peppers into bite sized pieces and add to a large skillet with the olive oil and the mushrooms. Sauté over medium heat until veggies are tender, about 5 minutes. Add pasta with pesto to pan and stir to combine. Remove from heat.
  3. Cube cooked chicken into bite sized pieces
  4. Once cooled enough to handle, skewer pasta, veggies and chicken in any order you want! The kids can even help to make their own!
  5. Serve warm or cold. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.

Tips of the Month MOBILE

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

“Use Your Oven”

Hands-off meals are the best! It seems everyone thinks a quick meal is stir-fry and, yes, while stir-fry is “easy”, it means you have to stand over the stove making sure nothing burns. (Plus, you have to carefully plan which vegetables are added at what time so they all cook evenly. Hardly a beginner’s dish!)

Cooking food in the oven is a “set it and forget it” operation. Simply prep your ingredients, season, place in a baking pan and go lounge or play a game with the kiddos!
