INGREDIENTS For 15-Minute Air Fryer Chicken Skewers

⭐1 kg chicken thighs or chicken breast boneless and skinless

⭐2 teaspoon onion powder

⭐2 teaspoon garlic powder

⭐1 ¼ teaspoon curry powder

⭐1 teaspoon allspice powder

⭐1.5 teaspoon salt

⭐¼ teaspoon pepper

⭐4 tablespoon ketchup

⭐2 tablespoon vinegar

Vegetables for Skewering

⭐1 red pepper optional

⭐1 red onion optional

⭐2 small zucchini optional

Instructions For 15-Minute Air Fryer Chicken Skewers

⭐In a large dish filled with water, soak the bamboo skewers for 15 minutes. If you need to cut the skewers down to fit your air fryer, do so before soaking

⭐Cut the boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts into skewer sized pieces, roughly 1.5 inches in size. Try to cut them evenly to ensure an even cook.

⭐Combine the chicken with all the spices along with the ketchup and vinegar

⭐Mix well and marinate for a minimum of 1 hour or overnight for maximum flavour. If you don’t have time, you can use them right away as well

⭐Slice the zucchini into rounds if using

⭐Chop the onion and red pepper into skewer sized pieces if using

⭐Skewer the chicken alternating with the zucchini, red pepper and onion. Alternatively, simply skewer the chicken pieces if using only chicken

⭐Lightly spray your air fryer with oil. Place the skewers in the air fryer basket in one layer

⭐Air fry the skewers at 380 F for 12-13 minutes, turning over halfway if needed

⭐Serve right away and enjoy!


⭐Recipe makes 13-15 skewers if using just chicken and 20 if skewers with the vegetables.

⭐If you don’t have an air fryer, you can also grill them over the stove top or on an outdoor grill for 3-4 minutes on each side until cooked through.
