For the Marinade:

  • 1.5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

For Skewers:

  • Wooden or metal skewers (if using wooden, soak them in water for 30 minutes to prevent burning)


  1. In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, minced garlic, dried oregano, dried thyme, ground cumin, smoked paprika, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper to create the marinade.
  2. Add the chicken pieces to the marinade, ensuring they are well-coated. Cover the bowl and let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  3. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  4. Thread the marinated chicken pieces onto skewers.
  5. Place the skewers in the EaZy MealZ air fryer basket (this makes it extra crispy), leaving space between each skewer for even cooking.
  6. Air fry for 12-15 minutes, turning the skewers halfway through, or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Remove from EaZy MealZ air fryer basket, let them rest for a few minutes, and serve hot.
  8. Optional: Garnish with fresh herbs like chopped parsley or cilantro and serve with a side of tzatziki sauce.

These Mediterranean-style chicken skewers are a burst of flavor and make for a delightful appetizer or main course that's both healthy and delicious.
