Mini Chicken Skewers with Pesto, Cranberries and Pistachios

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breast halves, cut into 24 long strips
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) pesto
  • 24 wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) honey
  • 2 tbsp dried cranberries, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp pistachios, finely chopped
  • Olive oil, for cooking
  • Salt and pepper

Preparation

  1. With the rack in the highest position, preheat the oven’s broiler.
  2. In a bowl, combine the chicken and pesto. Season with salt and pepper. Thread the meat onto the skewers (see note).
  3. Lightly oil a baking dish and arrange the skewers. Bake for about 8 minutes or until the meat is cooked through. Place in a serving dish or on a wooden board and brush with the honey while still hot. Sprinkle with the cranberries and pistachios.

Note

You can freeze the raw chicken skewers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and transfer them to a sealable plastic bag to keep in the freezer. The cooking time for the frozen skewers will be about 10 minutes under the broiler.
