HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER GREEK CHICKEN KABOBS
I love the way chicken cooks in the air fryer. The result is juicy on the inside and perfectly crisp on the outside. It really sears the flavors into the chicken and veggies.
STEP ONE: PREPARE MARINADE
In a mason jar combine the garlic, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, oregano, and olive oil.
Put the lid on the jar and shake the contents to combine.
STEP TWO: MARINATE CHICKEN
Place the bite-sized chicken pieces in a large bowl and pour the marinade over the chicken.
Toss the chicken to coat it in the marinade.
Place the bowl in the refrigerator and allow the chicken to marinate for 2 hours or overnight for the best results.
If you are short on time then just marinate the chicken for 15 minutes on the counter.
STEP THREE: PREPARE VEGGIES
When the chicken is almost done marinating it will be time to get the vegetables ready.
Toss the vegetables in olive oil and salt and pepper them.
STEP FOUR: MAKE KABOBS
Now thread the chicken and veggies alternating on the skewers.
If you are using wooden skewers be sure to soak the skewers in water for 30 minutes before assembling them.
Don't forget to make sure the skewers you are using will fit in your air fryer basket. I use 6-inch metal skewers and they work great!
STEP FIVE: AIR FRY
Lightly spray the air fryer basket with olive oil spray. Don't use an aerosol spray in the air fryer!
Place the skewers in the air fryer basket allowing room between each skewer.
Air fry at 380°F for 15 to 18 minutes, flipping the skewers over halfway through the cooking time. Cook until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of at least 165°F.
WW POINTS FOR GREEK CHICKEN KABOBS
If you are following the WW program this is a great WW dinner recipe.
There are 4 points per serving on the Purple and Blue plans and 7 points on the Green plan.
The points are coming from the olive oil in the marinade. Personally, I think the points are actually much lower because most of the marinade isn't actually consumed.
It is up to you if you want to count the 4 or 7 points or if you want to reduce the points because you aren't eating all of the marinade.
