Frequently Asked Questions about Weight Watchers Air Fryer Chicken
Is a chicken kebab healthy?
Yes. Kabobs are a healthier fast food option because they are not deep-fried and include vegetables. However, keep in mind that depending on the cut, most meat does contain fat. Chicken kebabs sometimes use thighs and breasts with the skin on. Use leaner cuts of meat if you want to cut down on the fat and calories.
What kind of meat is best for kabobs?
We prefer chicken breast and sirloin meats because they are lean. Cut the meat in big bite-size pieces, cut veggies in good bite-size pieces as well. Using pre-soaked wooden skewers or metal skewers, layer the meat of your choice with the vegetables, alternating for a pretty plate.
If the meat of your choice is really thin, cut it in slices instead of bit size pieces. Then zig-zag it on the skewer and alternate with your veggies.
How long do you cook chicken kebabs in an Air Fryer?
Place the skewers on a grill rack or directly in the air fryer basket. An air fryer oven works especially well with kebobs because the basket is wider.
Cook for 10 minutes on 380 degrees. Open the air fryer and flip the skewers. Cook for an additional 5-10 minutes until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
Can you stack chicken in an Air Fryer?
Do not stack chicken in your air fryer. Because the air fryer cooks with hot air instead of oil, it’s important to allow air to fully circulate in order to foods to get done in the middle.
Do you need to flip the chicken in the Air Fryer?
Yes, we suggest that you flip chicken in half way through cooking in the air fryer. This ensures that chicken cooks more evenly and the outside gets cripsy all the way around.
How do you cut chicken breast for kabobs?
For this Air Fryer chicken kabob recipe, clean 2 large chicken breasts and cut them into 2 inches pieces. Big bite-size pieces will help the meat hold to the skewers during the cooking process.
A key to making kebobs is to be sure the chunks are big enough to thread on the swekers without cracking. Also, be sure to cut pieces that are as close to even in size as possible so that they cook at the same rate.
What Sides to Eat with Kabobs?
Most kabobs are filled with delicious meat and vegetables and could be eaten alone. However, if you want to a side dishes to go with your Air Fryer Chicken Kabob, consider a grain such as brown rice, quinoa, or pasta.
A salad is also a nice addition. I recommend our Apple Broccoli Salad. It’s refreshing and perfect for a summer meal.
If you have leftover raw vegetables from your kebob assembly, you can always make vegetable kabobs in the air fryer too.
Can you use wooden skewers in an Air Fryer?
Yes, wooden skewers can be used in the air fryer with some preparation.
If necessary, cut skewers down to size if your air fryer basket is smaller or round.
Soak wooden skewers in water for 20 minutes or up to 3 hours. This will prevent them from prevent them from burning, smoking, or catching on fire.
