Air Fryer Greek Chicken Kabobs are a super healthy and delicious meal that could not be easier to make. Chicken marinated in Greek seasonings and then air fried with onions, mushrooms, and bell peppers will surely become a true family favorite.
As much as we love Mexican food in our house, we love Greek food too! My Gyros with Greek Chicken recipe is a regular on the monthly menu. But one day, I wanted to make something a little lighter, and that’s when I thought of making kabobs.
Kabobs are just fun, aren’t they? Little skewers of meat, veggies, and potatoes almost make you feel like a kid again! Try serving it with Tasty Roasted Garlic Hummus and crackers for a light but filling meal!
These greek chicken kabobs are incredibly versatile. You can make a smaller batch and make them in the air fryer or whip up a larger batch that can be thrown on the grill for a family BBQ.
And can we talk about air fryers for just a bit? 😉 I always seem to be a little late to the game, if you know what I mean. But, once I’m in, I am all in. My air fryer is definitely my favorite appliance.
If you have one, you already know all the delicious foods you can quickly prepare. And if you don’t have one, you will be AMAZED at how quick and easy it is to get a healthy and delicious meal on the table.

Here are some common questions I see readers ask about these Air Fryer Greek Chicken Kabobs…and their answers.
Can I make the air fryer greek chicken kabobs ahead of time?
Yes, you can! I would suggest assembling the kabobs no more than 3 – 4 hours in advance of cooking. Place them in an air-tight container or storage bag in the refrigerator to keep until ready.
Can I freeze these greek chicken kabobs?
Normally, I would suggest assembling the kabobs and placing them in a freezer-safe container to freeze for another time.
However, with these kabobs being marinated in yogurt and oil, I would not recommend it.
How long will the greek chicken kabobs keep?
Leftover kabobs will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 – 4 days in an air-tight container or storage bag.
Is it safe to use wooden skewers for the kabobs in an air fryer?
Yes, you certainly can! Keep in mind that wooden skewers should be soaked in water for at least an hour before cooking so they do not burn in the air fryer.
