Grilled Pesto Chicken Skewers

I’m developing a serious case of summer FOMO. My coping mechanism: eat Caprese salad in as many forms as possible, including these Grilled Pesto Chicken Skewers with Tomato and Mozzarella.

These Grilled Pesto Chicken Kabobs are the perfect summer dish! EASY recipe with ONLY THREE INGREDIENTS — Serve as appetizer at your next backyard bash, or have the skewers for dinner any night of the week. Healthy and delicious! @wellplated

For those of you who, unlike myself, lack a cooler, younger sibling to keep you updated on hip acronyms, FOMO stands for “Fear of Missing Out.” At the end of every June, I feel prickles of light panic, because one third of summer has disappeared, and I fear I am behind on making the most of it.

How can it possibly be the last day of June, and I have yet to bake my Grammy’s classic shortcake, toast a s’more (though these indoor s’mores bites were a delightful alternative), or go camping?

Fruit Pizza Cookies
