Air Fryer Mystery Sauce Chicken Kebabs


  • 1 lb (about 450g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup mystery sauce (create your own sauce or use your favorite marinade)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 bell pepper, cut into chunks
  • 1 red onion, cut into chunks
  • Bamboo or metal skewers

For the Mystery Sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)


  1. In a bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the mystery sauce.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine chicken pieces with half of the mystery sauce. Let it marinate for at least 30 minutes, or refrigerate for a few hours for better flavor.
  3. Preheat the air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  4. Thread marinated chicken, bell pepper, and red onion alternately onto skewers.
  5. Brush the skewers with olive oil to prevent sticking to the air fryer basket.
  6. Place the skewers in the air fryer basket in a single layer.
  7. Air fry for about 12-15 minutes, turning the skewers halfway through the cooking time or until the chicken is cooked through and has a nice char.
  8. Brush the cooked kebabs with the remaining mystery sauce before serving.
