Place basil, garlic, Parmesan cheese, and walnuts in a food processor. Slowly add oil while pulsing. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
Cut chicken into one inch cubes and place in a large zip-lock bag. Add pesto mixture to the bag and allow chicken to marinade for at least an hour or up to four.
Soak wooden skewers in water while chicken is marinating.
Alternate chicken and tomatoes on the skewers.
Heat grill and brush to clean. Place skewers on the grill over medium low heat. Cook for 5 – 8 minutes. Turn and cook for another 5 – 8 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
