Chicken Kabobs In The Air Fryer

It’s so much easier to cook chicken kabobs in the air fryer than on the grill. And you can do it any time of the year! Just chop the chicken, season it, skewer it, and cook for flavorful pieces of the chicken that the whole family will love.

The key to this delicious chicken is the marinade sauce. It’s made up of soy sauce, olive oil, honey, pepper, and garlic powder. You can season the chicken and cook right away or let it marinate for even more zest. The sauce infuses the chicken with layers of flavor.

How To Make Air Fryer Chicken Kabobs

To prep this cooking method, we like to soak the skewers in water for about 30 minutes so they are less likely to burn in the air fryer.

Go ahead and cut the chicken breast into pieces. Add them to a medium-sized bowl. Then it’s time to make the marinade.

Stir up soy sauce, olive oil, honey, pepper, and garlic powder in a small bowl. Pour the sauce over the bowl of chicken. Stir to coat chicken completely in marinade.

At this point you can cook the chicken right away or let it marinade in the sauce.

When you’re ready to cook the chicken, add about 7 pieces to each skewer, for a total of 4 skewers in the air fryer basket. Cook at 400 degrees for 12 minutes.

Halfway through cooking time, pull out air fryer basket and flip the kebabs over. This helps them to brown evenly and avoid sticking to the air fryer basket.

When cooking time is up, check the chicken in several places with a meat thermometer. It should read at least 165 degrees. If not, cook chicken for another few minutes and check again.

If the chicken is done cooking, carefully remove the kabobs with a pair of tongs. Remove chicken from skewers and serve!
