About the Recipe

My twist on an Atlanta classic! Made in the air fryer they come out extra crispy and really juicy. The lemon pepper butter takes these skewers to another level!


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into 1 inch pieces

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp black pepper (fresh ground)

  • 1 tbsp garlic (minced or grated)

  • 1 tbsp lemon zest

  • 1/4 tsp paprika

  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. In a bowl add in the chicken thighs, salt, black pepper, minced garlic, lemon zest, paprika and olive oil. Mix everything until thoroughly combined.

  2. Skewer your marinated chicken thighs, packing the meat onto each skewer tightly.

  3. Once all your meat is skewered, air fry for 12 mins @400F.

  4. Flip and air fry for 8-10 mins @400F or until the internal temperature reaches 165F

Lemon pepper butter

  1. Add in a bowl the partially melted unsalted butter, salt, black pepper, lemon zest, paprika, sugar, lemon juice

  2. Mix thoroughly until all ingredients are fully incorporated.

  3. Once the skewers are cooked, baste with the lemon pepper butter and serve immediately.

  4. Enjoy!
