Instructions:

  1. Preheat grill to medium; grease one side well and line the other side with heavy-duty foil. 
  2. Blend butter with pesto; set aside. Pat bocconcini balls dry on paper towels.
  3. Toss tomatoes and bocconcini with half the butter mixture. Thread a cherry tomato onto a soaked skewer. Wrap the bocconcini with a basil leaf, thread onto skewer and finish with a second tomato. Repeat to make 6 tomato-cheese skewers.
  4. In a separate bowl, toss chicken with salt, pepper and remaining pesto mixture. Thread chicken cubes onto 6 soaked wooden skewers. 
  5. Grill chicken on the unlined side, turning as needed, for 10 minutes or until cooked through. Grill tomato-cheese skewers on foil-lined side, for 3 to 4 minutes, turning until tomatoes are lightly charred and cheese is oozy. Drizzle with balsamic glaze if desired before serving. 

Tips:

  • For food safety, keep raw chicken skewers separate from the cheese and tomato skewers and wash hands well after handling the raw meat.
