I use whatever fresh produce is available in the produce section and cooks at the same rate as cubed meat. That way the texture is perfectly tender and nothing gets too dried out. Enjoy as is or with fun dipping sauces. THIS my friends is how to cook chicken in an air fryer to perfection. 😉

If you love easy air fryer recipes too, here are some resources to start with:

How long to cook chicken skewers in air fryer

The timing will vary slightly depending on how thick and large your pieces are. I like to advise that the meat should be a large bite since they will shrink a bit and make it easier to eat when slid off the skewer. You are looking at about 15 minutes or so so keep that in mind.

Easy is how we cook around here so even if you’re a beginner we will help you make these! They’re super simple I tell you. Any time you can make chicken AND vegetables in air fryer is a big win as far as one pot meals go.

Are chicken kebabs good for you?

Yes! They are a healthier fast food option because they are not deep fried and include lots of veggies. Keep in mind that kabob meat does contain fat, the amount will vary depending on the meat used.

Really you could use thighs for Chicken Kabobs in Oven or this method as well, use what you have. Boneless skinless is key either way. Just use what is on sale at the time or what you have on hand. Dark meat has a lot more flavor and is tenderest overall but to each their own.

  1. Chicken breasts
    1. boneless, skinless, cut into bite size pieces of chicken
  2. Wooden skewers
  3. Onion and/or red onion
    1. bell peppers can be used too
  4. Zucchini
  5. Grape tomatoes
  6. Red wine vinegar
  7. Olive oil
  8. Lemon
  9. Salt and pepper
  10. Oregano

You will need a bowl or thick gallon freezer bag to marinate chicken. You can skip that step if you just want to lightly season like our salmon kabobs instead.

What temperature should I cook chicken kabobs?

If you’re looking for keto dinners this one and our air fryer zucchini boats are great. Whether you grill or make air fryer chicken kabobs your instant read thermometer should reach the internal  temperature of 165 degrees.

  • If making air fryer pork kabobs, temperature needs to be at least 145 degrees for the pork.
  • No matter what meat you use allow them to rest once cooking is done to maintain juiciness.
  • You could throw them on the smoker too if you were cooking outside too.

What is the difference between kabob and kebab?

Kabob is typically used in the US while the British pronunciation and spelling is kebab. Both are defined as a dish with pieces of meat, fish, or vegetables cooked on a skewer or spit.

What goes with kabobs?

This is why we love air fried meat and vegetables.

  • It has a quick cook time
  • The fat drips away through the air fryer basket
  • You get crispy outsides without any oil needed.

Using the air crisp function you could make these healthy air fryer fajitas using beef too.

You could definitely add fruit on there too. Just like if you were to add it to pizza to make it savory and sweet this is a hit with kids for sure. Just use a small can of chunks if you like the idea.

Almost all of recipes on The Typical Mom blog are made in under 30 minutes or less. If you only have an Instant Pot but still want to air fry just grab a CrispLid or now they have their own brand of lid you can buy so you can turn your Instant Pot into an air fryer today.
