Side note: Some call it red onion or purple onion. Either way it's a great option for this recipe.
Marinate the chicken
You want to set aside at least 15 minutes to marinate the chicken.
Marinate for at least 15 minutes, or you can marinate overnight, it will give the chicken more flavor.
Assembling air fryer chicken skewers
Note: Make sure your skewers fit in your air fryer before you begin preparing this recipe. If your air fryer did not come with skewers, you can purchase some skewers like these on Amazon My Cosori Air Fryer is 5.8 qt and is a generous size. (Amazon affiliate links).
Also, be mindful of chopping your veggies all around the same size, about an inch. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it will help with even cooking.
You can load them up however you wish, but I recommend alternating veggies with chicken. This recipe made 7 skewers for me, but this is up to you.
I definitely recommend cooking these in batches, as not to overcrowd your air fryer basket.
2.5 batches worked well for me. You can place the first batch on a plate and cover with foil as the second batch cooks.
Side dish suggestions
I served mine with quinoa. However, any of the following with pair nicely...
Rice (wild or jasmine) with plant-based butter
Roasted sweet potatoes
