How to make low-carb chicken pesto tomato bites

Print this recipe
Cooking up low-carb hors d'oeuvres can feel like a challenge, but it doesn't have to be with the recipe below. Each skewer holds a flavorful morsel of pesto-marinated, prosciutto-wrapped chicken. The cherry tomatoes add a fresh touch.
Have fun with the presentation of these by folding a fresh basil leaf into an accordion and placing it between the chicken and the tomato. Not only will it mirror the fresh flavors of the pesto, but it will also add some bright green color to your plate. You can also add a touch of color to the serving platter by using several different colors of cherry tomatoes.
