Air Fryer Greek Chicken is a complete, easy air fryer dinner recipe that’s healthy and perfect served with warm Naan bread along with the yummy yogurt dipping sauce.
Kind like a deconstructed chicken gyro is how we enjoyed ours.
How to make Air Fryer Greek Chicken
First cut 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs into bite size pieces.
And put them in a gallon size plastic bag.
Then mix the sauce and marinade together in a bowl.
Just combine 2 containers of nonfat plain Greek yogurt along with some mayo, lemon juice, oregano, garlic or garlic powder, kosher salt, and pepper.
Add a few spoonfuls of this to the chicken and massage the bag until it’s evenly coated.
And marinate in the fridge for a few hours.
Then cut a red pepper and a red onion into inch size pieces and toss them in a bowl with olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper.
And put them in the air fryer basket.
Put the marinated chicken bites over top along with another sprinkle of kosher salt, pepper, and oregano.
Then set your air fryer to 390 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes.
While the chicken and veggies are cooking in the air fryer, warm up some Naan bread or pita bread.
I went with this Stonefire Naan.
Serve Air Fryer Greek Chicken with the remaining yogurt sauce and the warm Naan bread 🙂
The dream bite for me had some chicken, veggies, lots of sauce, and the warm bread.
So yummy and super easy for a dinner win in my book!
