Air fryer Chicken kebabs

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Marinating Time: 1 hour (optional)
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes (including marinating time)
Recipe Intensity: Moderate


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Wooden or metal skewers


  1. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes to prevent burning during cooking.
  2. In a bowl, combine the plain yogurt, olive oil, minced garlic, ground cumin, paprika, ground coriander, ground turmeric, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create the marinade.
  3. Add the chicken cubes to the marinade and toss until they are evenly coated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or overnight for more flavor.
  4. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 5 minutes.
  5. Thread the marinated chicken cubes onto the skewers, leaving a little space between each piece.
  6. Lightly coat the air fryer basket with cooking spray or brush with oil to prevent sticking.
  7. Place the chicken skewers in the air fryer basket in a single layer, without overcrowding. You may need to cook in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
  8. Air fry the chicken kebabs at 400°F (200°C) for about 12-15 minutes, flipping them halfway through cooking, until the chicken is cooked through and has a nice golden color on the outside.
  9. Once done, remove the chicken kebabs from the air fryer and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
  10. Serve the air fryer chicken kebabs hot with your favorite sides, such as rice, salad, or grilled vegetables.

Note: Cooking times may vary depending on the size and thickness of your chicken cubes and the efficiency of your air fryer. Use a meat thermometer to ensure the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).

Enjoy your flavorful and tender air fryer chicken kebabs!
