Easy and delicious Air Fryer Greek chicken kebabs recipe

An overnight marinade packs in the flavour of these very delicous air fryer Greek chicken kebabs. The yoghurt ensures the meat is ultra-juicy. I have added oregano, paprika, garlic, lemon, mint, onion, and thyme because I love all the flavour they add.

I always serve these kebabs with tzatziki on a flatbread pita or in a pita pocket. Check out my recipe for the easy no-yeast Air Fryer flatbread pita which is the perfect way to wrap up the chicken.

A simple tomato, onion and cucumber salad is all that is required to finish this meal off. Give it a good spritz with lemon and you are in for a treat.

This is a great meal prep dish that is so healthy too. You can build a salad or grain bowl with the chicken as an alternative.
