These healthy yogurt marinated chicken skewers are so easy to make in the air fryer and are perfect as an appetizer, snack, sandwich filler, or on top of a salad.
The Greek flavors in air fryer chicken skewers are out of this world... tart lemon, oregano and thyme, garlic, and tangy yogurt are the perfect Greek combination. The yogurt not only adds a fantastic flavor, but after a couple hours of marinating, it keeps your Greek chicken skewers moist and tender.
For a totally different take on low carb chicken you'll want to try Keto Parmesan Crusted Chicken, too.
The dipping sauce
And then there's the dipping sauce. These air fryer chicken skewers are amazing on their own, but when you add the creamy feta dip to the mix, they are just to die for. Make extra to use it as a salad dressing or to dip veggies and pita chips in, too. If you're just looking for the Yogurt Sauce, we made a separate post for that recipe.
Now about that air fryer... Did you get one for Christmas that you're afraid to use? Thinking about getting one but not sure how much you'll use it? I am here to tell you that these brilliant little appliances have so many wonderful uses in the kitchen. This is the one I have and it's inexpensive, compact and perfect for beginners.
On the other hand, my mom has this one and it is bigger, but holds so much food all at once. It's one of the most popular ones on the market.

Making the chicken skewers and sauce
Be sure to give your Greek chicken skewers plenty of time to marinate so the yogurt can do its thing. A couple hours will work just fine, but I always try to put mine in the marinade the night before.
The creamy feta sauce is seriously so easy... just put all the ingredients in a little food processor like this one and blend until creamy. That's it! Don't forget to make extra for other snacks since it's such a versatile dip.
What else should I have with my air fryer Greek chicken skewers?
Make a Greek salad to go on the side (or underneath), or grab some pita and make your skewers into wrap filling. These would also go great with our Mediterranean shrimp flatbread or Greek Shrimp Crostini.
For a traditional side dish that's low carb and keto try our Keto Squash Casserole. If you prefer a cold side dish you'll want to make Salad with Grapefruit. It has the perfect champagne vinaigrette to go along with it.

Greek Chicken Skewers
- Juice and zest one lemon. In a large bowl, combine lemon juice and zest, yogurt, garlic, olive oil, dried oregano, dried thyme, salt, and pepper.
- Add chicken pieces to marinade and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours to overnight.
- To make feta sauce, combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.

- Set air fryer to 350 and arrange skewers in a single layer. Cook 8 minutes. Flip, and cook another 8 minutes.
- Serve skewers with dipping sauce, squeezing cooked lemon over them as desired.
