Air Fryer Chicken Skewers

These Air Fryer Chicken Skewers are deliciously tender and juicy and make the perfect filling for a shish kebab (or kabob).  No air fryer? You can easily cook these under the grill too!

Top Tip

If you're using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes to prevent them from burning.

Step One:

In a large bowl, mix together the coconut yoghurt, garlic paste, turmeric, ground cumin, ground coriander and lemon zest to make the marinade.

Step Two:

Cut the chicken into chunks, add to the bowl and toss to coat in the marinade.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (or ideally overnight).

Step Three:

Whilst the chicken is marinating, chop the peppers and onions into equal sized squares.

Step Four:

Preheat the air fryer to 175˚C / 350˚F or grill to 180˚C. Thread the chicken and vegetables onto the skewers, alternating between the different ingredients.

Step Five:

 Spray the air fryer tray with some olive oil and give the kebabs a spray too and cook for 15-17 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165˚F (74˚C). Turn them halfway through.
