Directions

Prepare chicken:
1. Cut chicken breasts into regular cubes. Prepare grill for medium-high heat.
2. Whisk the ingredients for the marinade in a large bowl and add chicken cubes. Add chicken and toss to coat. Allow to marinate for 30 minutes, then thread 5 or 6 chicken pieces onto each skewer.

The salsa:

The pesto:

Grilling:

2. Grill chicken, turning and basting often with reduced marinade, until cooked through, 8–10 minutes.
3. Remove from grill and transfer to a serving platter or individual plates. Top with pesto and strawberries and serve immediately.
