Chef Norm’s Notes:
A PROTEIN TWIST! To give this appetizer a bit more body, Chef Norm likes to cook chicken breast and cut into cubes and intersperse them on the skewers with the mozarella, tomato and basil. Then place the skewers on a plate and coat them with olive oil and sprinkle with a blend of thyme, basil, salt and pepper. Once coated, preheat a pan on medium high heat with a little olive oil and pan sear or grill on BBQ for approximately 45 seconds per side until tomatoes are slightly soft and mozzarella is slightly melted. Plate and drizzle with your favourite Nonna Pia’s Balsamic Reduction.
